Nira: I am ok. How is the budget?
Ganpathy: Yaa! Yesterday I got very late so I said. That is why I didn't call.
Ganpathy: Also all the... You know, some of the guests who came to our program...
Ganpathy: Stayed till 10 o'clock. So while they were just... You know after that they were leaving home so they were chatting for a little while.
Ganpathy: All this Bhide was there. Ashok Chawla was there. I said, you know it is important to make contact with Bhide no?
P.V. Bhide - Revenue Secretary (2007 - 2010)
Ashok Chawla - Finance Secretary (2009), Chairman of CCI (Competition Commission of India) (2011)
Nira: Hmm! But Bhide is completely with ADAG.
Ganpathy: Ahh! No, no but see we have to give him chabi na
Ganpathy: So I said... Also I gave... I cultivate him a little bit then I will be able to cultivate his officers as well. Even if he doesn't work then he will get them to do things.
Ganpathy: So that is what. I spend some time with them... Also the CBC chap also. The CBC chairman, that Jha!
Ganpathy: There then CBDT chairman Moorthy. Ashok Chawla was also there. I said, let's see, you know. Chat up these people and then you know.
CBDT - Central Board of Direct Taxes
Ganpathy: You have told me enough lot of things related to these departments which will come up.
Nira: Hmm! Hmm!
Ganpathy: So I said lets have a sort of...
Ganpathy: Touching base with them.
Ganpathy: Today is the this thing na
Nira: 11:30. They will give a date for Monday.
Ganpathy: Ehh! No, no. Ok. So...
Nira: They will be... Even our side is appearing. So they will give a date. We will say na
, that we have have also filed.
Ganpathy: Haa! Haa! So it will just be a mention and then taking note of the point that it is admitted, hai na
? (isn't it?)
Nira: No, no. Admitted abhi nahi hoga. Abhi toh admitted ke leye argument honge.
(Admission will not happen now, Now there will be arguments for admitted.)
! (Okay) So even before the admission they will listen... Because I thought since both parties have come in appeal...
Ganpathy: Anyway there is no question of not admitting it na
. When anyway both people are in appeal.
Nira: They will turn around and say it is a government policy issue. Please go to the government.
Ganpathy: Hmm! Yaa! Yaa! If they decide to do that then it is a totally different case.
Ganpathy: But on the point of admitting and not admitting both sides are on the same page.
Nira: It will have to be admitted na
Ganpathy: They want the intervention of this court in...
Nira: That's right. That's right. But maybe it will get admitted and they will say that let's meet on, you know. Let's hear it on Monday. Week Monday.
Ganpathy: Yaa, yaa! Maybe the papers have to be submitted before that and all.
Nira: The papers are all given to everyone na
Ganpathy: Ok na
, they might have to give more affidavits and all na
Nira: Emm! Yaa each side yaa!
Ganpathy: Yaa and since there are caveats from both sides so each one will also get opportunity to file a counter affidavit.
Ganpaty: So those things will be there so anyway whatever development is there please do let me know. I am in constant touch with both Rohini and Supria.
Ganpathy: To develop different line of stories. One Supria on the Supreme Court and with Rohini I have told her to focus on this business of how the fertiliser and others are now going to get affected.
Ganpathy: So we will work on both sides.
Nira: I told you na
she is coming to see me ehh!
Ganpathy: Yaa, yaa! Good good.
Nira: Toh uska kya karu vo usko mai GVK ka letter du?
( So what should I do about her, should I give her the GVK letter?)
Ganpathy: Haan! haan! De dijiye.
( Yes, yes! Give it.) Whatever letters we have let us share it.
but question Ganu, is that I have told... The thing is that I will only give it if I am promised a front page tomorrow huh! Because it is a very critical letter.
Ganpathy: Yaa, yaa! You tell her that this is you know. She should make sure that it is front page tomorrow and in the mean while I will also do some ground work. Speak to people.
Nira: Shall I send you the GVK letter?
Ganpathy: Yaa, yaa! And some state government letters you said na
we have them as well?
Nira: It's not come in yet.
Ganpathy: Ehuh! Ok, ok!
Nira: But I don't want to do it at the same time na
Nira: I am not going to do it at the same time because I have got enough state government letters that have come in.
Nira: And I don't want to do all of it at the same time.
Ganpathy: Ok fine let's do a, take a... you know give - cite a couple of examples of industry letters now and do them.
Ganpathy: And then go to the state government letters later and I also thought you said na
there is some gist and some copy of the petition etc.
Nira: Yaa! I sent it to you yesterday. Didn't you get the copy of the petition?
Nira: How strange!
Ganpathy: No, no, wait, wait, wait. If it is in my mail in the later part of the day I might not have just seen it at all.
Nira: Ok,ok. I told Rohit yesterday to get it across to you.
Ganpathy: Ehah! But by hard copy or by mail?
Nira: Hard copy.
Ganpathy: No hard copy means it has not reached me because yesterday I was on the move constantly you know between North Block and Shasthri Bhawan and our studio etc.
Ganpathy: So therefore I may not have seen it. So it may not have been possible for him to reach me etc.
