Kanimozhi appears to have opted out of the cabinet race. Niira Radia is talking to Cecilia (probably an employee) that Kani will not settle for anything less than a minister with independent charge. She doesn't want to work under Dayanidhi Maran. Her view is that he (Maran) shouldn't be there in the first place. "Don't worry," says Nira, "I think there is still a chance."
