Niira Radia: Hi. Listen, they're caught up in a meeting, but they are going to speak to you.
Niira Radia: They are going to speak to you, that message has gone to them. What also that I have just mentioned to them is that you're not, only Raja was supposed to have gone to the swearing-in.
Niira Radia: So they're like little, they're so sort of foxed about the whole thing, they don't understand what's going on. So, I told them....
Kanimozhi: No, they just want to come and say that whatever happens, I'm in your side.
Niira Radia: Who wants to say?
Kanimozhi: Whoever, that guy who, Daya is going, no?
Niira Radia: Daya is not talking to Ahmed Patel, Daya is not talking to Ahmed Patel, I don't know who Daya is talking to.
Kanimozhi: Okay. No, no, Daya is going to the swearing-in, no?
Niira Radia: No, that's what I've heard from Congress that he has given his name, that he is going for the swearing-in.
Kanimozhi: I don't know, he is supposed to come back with me. So, I mean, it's just that he's going out to say that whatever ... in spite of whatever my leaders says, I'm [Indiscernible].
Niira Radia: Yeah, which your dad should be told, no?
Kanimozhi: That is what, he will come and give some stupid cock and bull story to him. He will say Ahmed Patel... no, no, he will come and say Ahmed Patel called.
Kanimozhi: He said at least you should come, you're the only representative, that you're the face of DMK. If you're not there, it won't be good.
Niira Radia: If your dad were to say to him that I only authorized Raja to go, no? If your dad said, dad to tell Raja to tell Maran that I only authorized Raja not you.
Kanimozhi: No, dad won't, no way do I have to call up dad and tell him, now I can't.
Niira Radia: Okay, fine. I know you're fed up of it, but this is only a start, no?
Kanimozhi: Yeah, yeah.
Niira Radia: Politics, my dear. (laughs)
Kanimozhi: You don't mind doing politics with other people, but your own people...
Niira Radia: I know, but it's okay, but I know you are frustrated with him, so just leave him, just ignore him and you know he'll soon become irrelevant. But you have to....
Kanimozhi: No... it's not that. No, no, it is not that, Niira. See, I don't mind the healthy competition, its sick that somebody is going against your own party and leader, that is what....
Niira Radia: Yeah, but then your father has to understand it, he's not understanding, so you have to tell him that.
Kanimozhi: How do I make him understand, keep telling, he doesn't understand....
Niira Radia: Who is going to make him understand? Only you can do that. Nobody else, Kani. He will not listen to anyone else except you.
Niira Radia: You know that, the only person who is going to listen to because none of the others, everybody else is too scared to go and tell him that. You're his daughter, so he can listen to you. You have to use your position, Kani, you have to. If you want to save the party, you're going to have to do this.
Kanimozhi: I'll do my best.
Niira Radia: Yeah, you take care, I'll call you....
Kanimozhi: Anyway, I'll be leaving to the airport at 4 o'clock....
Niira Radia: Yeah, that's doesn't matter, so they'll call you in Chennai, but they know that they have to speak to you.
Kanimozhi: Then, I'll be reaching Chennai around 7:30 if possible.
Niira Radia: Then, when they call you, you just tell them, you please come to Chennai if you want to talk, whatever you want to talk come to...
