Niira Radia: Kani, one feedback that's coming back from Congress is that, that you've not even declared who your official negotiator is.
Niira Radia: Five, five people are negotiating at the same time. If your dad also appoints one person who is going to negotiate what everybody has done, then the problem gets solved.

Niira Radia: Good God. So, he is also not going for the swearing-in?
Kanimozhi: No, no. He is not going.
Niira Radia: Mm-hmm.
Kanimozhi: And then because I just wanted to stay back for the kids' sake and take a later flight, he also wants to.
Niira Radia: My God. You know, he is watching everything you're doing...
