Niira: Hi Shankkar.
Shankkar Aiyar: What's happening? No deal, no?
(No)... No deal...yeh kya hai na tumhari
Palllavi Ghosh aur
Navika Kumar (because your Pallavi Ghosh and Navika Kumar) are a bit mad...because you should take it off your head...because actually the deal hasn't happened.
Shankar: Nahi, nahi, main toh usko
Headlines wale ko bola kuch bhi
run karne se pehle mere ko puchho
(No... I've told the people in Headlines to ask me before running anything).
Radia: Nahi woh run kar raha hai woh
- breaking. (No they are running it - breaking.)
Shankar: Headlines... Headlines bhi kar raha hai
Radia: Yes, dono kar rahe hai
(both) ... both Aaj Tak and Headlines are doing it.
Radia: And the thing is the meeting hasn't taken place... they are waiting for Raja to come back tonight and Kani is also coming back tonight... she left at five and Raja left in the - is leaving now after the swearing in.
Radia: He was nominated to just attend the swearing in... kuch kal 11:30 baje meeting hoga
(there is will be a meeting at 11:30 tomorrow)...they'll decide.
Radia: We are very clear and Prime Minister is very clear. Prime Minister just reached out to DMK and has said that they have made a reasonable offer. We'll resolve the matter in a few days... obviously, the deal is not done, you know its not done. I know that Kani just landed in Chennai.
Radia: I know nothing has happened. Yeh lage hue hai
unnecessarily (They are unnecessarily upto something). I don't know who's...
Shankar: Theek hai main ek... Theek hai main ek
phone chalata hun. (Ok....I'll make a call.)
Radia: Ek aur baat hai... aur kar lo... yeh ek...
There is one more thing...yes do it...one more thing...this Sunil and all of them are very active to get Maran there.
Shankar: Dekho main pehle se bol raha tha...ki tumne usko -
Kani ko bataya ki nahi, ki badmash ne...kya
misrepresentation karta rehta hai yeh
(See, I was saying that...did you tell Kani how this scoundrel has been misrepresenting?)
Radia: Ha bol dia...woh sab, aaj toh
CM ko bhi pata lag gaya hai./i> (Yes I told her all that today...even the CM knows about it now.)
Radia: He went and told Chief Minister that Ahmed Patel has asked me to stay back... so... then... Chief Minister told him that you join Congress.
Radia: If... that is... this thing... you... I am telling you that you cannot attend the swearing in. Only Raja can attend it.
Radia: He couldn't handle that...toh usne kal bhi confuse kar dia... kal
deal ho jaata... isne jaake bola ke
(the deal would have happened yesterday but he went and confused them stating that) - last time we did it in 2004, we should try for it now again.
Shankar: Nahi woh unke taraf se batting kar raha hai isliye sab lafda ho raha hai
. (He is playing from their side, causing havoc.)
Radia: Kinki taraf se?
(From who's side?)
Shankar: Congress ki taraf se
. (In favour of the Congress)
Radia : He is doing it from Sunil Mittal, right?... he shouldn't do that because let me tell you one thing - Karunanidhi ... when I was there at Tamil Nadu house, he made one thing very clear, you must know this...
Radia: He said because there has been so much controversy on Raja - and he was talking to Kani and of course she was translating - because there has been so much controversy on Raja I cannot let anybody believe that it was wrong, therefore Raja will come back as Telecom Minister.
Radia: And he told that to Prime Minister also.
Shankar: main toh usko
