Niira: Daljeet ek hi baat, jo tumhare
deal kar rahe ho
(just one thing, the journalists you are dealing with) -
Niira: Tum unko
(you)...you know like Nayantara today called me on Amby Valley and all that, I've no problem in them calling me, but if they start calling me for every story toh phir toh galat ho jayegi na, toh tum logon ko bhi woh sunenge nahin, haan
(then it'll be wrong, then they won't listen to you guys either, no)?
Daljeet: No no no no no, that won't happen in the future.
(Yes), they - I don't mind meeting all of them, but they need to contact...whoever it is, na, jo bhi tumhare woh
(whoever they are to you) -
Daljeet: Yeah, sure sure sure sure.
Niira: Woh thoda dhyan rakhna
(Keep an eye on that), but don't say anything to her, so she doesn't get upset but slowly thoda sa woh dekh lena
(just take a look at that).
Daljeet: Yeah sure, ma'am, I'll -
Niira: - She wants clarity, I don't mind giving her clarity, but it really ideally should come through you.
Daljeet: Okay, ma'am, okay okay.
Niira: Hai na? Kyonki
(Isn't it? Because) after all these are your relationships and they should be - and she's a good girl, kab kar rahi hai
Tata Power ki story
(when is she doing Tata Power's story) ?
Daljeet: Uh, she's doing it for Monday.
Niira: Then you're going to circulate, right?
Daljeet: Yeah, yeah of course. We'll get it run through PTI, and we'll distribute it individually to DH, HT, TOI, everybody.
. PTI ko dena. Main jaake
Hari Pathak ko milee hun abhi, main
Manoj Modi ko leke gayi thi, wahan pe
Razdan ko milne ko
(Yes, give it to PTI. I went over to meet Hari Pathak just now. I took Manoj Modi there along with me, to meet Razdan.)
Niira: - Aur maine... dekh,
(And I... look), we're gonna give this a try, haan
(Yes), we're going to try everything, I'm not going to believe ke
Tony sab jagah pahuncha hua hai aur koi kuch karega nahin, yeh mein maanne ko tayar nahin hun
(that Tony has reached everywhere and no one is doing anything, I'm not ready to believe this).
Daljeet: No no no no, it's not like that, ma'am, it's not like that, they're getting beating in the media every second day, every second day.
(so) I'm not prepared to accept all this, "jab humko kabhi
Rohit Khanna hame kuch bol deta hai"
Manoj Modi ko bhi yehi bola hai
(I'm not prepared to accept all this 'Rohit Khanna says something to us', I've said this to Manoj as well.)
Daljeer: Uh huh.
Niira: Hum log chaar-paanch jane hain jisko
handle karna hai, yeh
matter. Aur yeh mein manne ke liye tayar nahin hun ke in log - in logon ke
strategies destructive hai, woh kabhi bhi
succesful nahin honge
(Four-five of us should handle this matter. And I'm not ready to accept that these people - the strategies of these people are destructive, they'll never be succesful).
Daljeet: Ma'am, see, after these meetings that you had in the last couple of two days, yeah? With Manoj Modi and all that, there is a lot of change in the perception -
Daljeet: - I got a call from Prabhakar Sinha this morning -
Daljeet: - He said, ki
ADAG called him up and they said ki
"We have sent you that Mukesh Agarwal wallah
paper', and but the papers have carried the story that the government is an intervener and not a respondent. But you haven't carried that story, why?
Daljeet: And he replied - he told me ki maine unko bola hai ki arrey, tum log paper bhej do, phir mai story thanda kar doonga. Tum log sab jhoot-voot bolte rehte ho, ulte se paper bhejte ho, galat bhejte ho
. (that I've told them to send the papers, and I will clear the story. You guys keep lying, sending the wrong story in- )
Daljeet: Main jab tak
clarify nahin karunga, aaj tumhari
story nahin hogi yahan pe
(Until I clarify, your story won't be out today).
Daljeet: So I could see that change, just because of that one last night meeting.
(Yes), 'cause I met him today this evening, I gave him all the documents that he requires, not all, I mean some of the documents that I already had in my possession -
Niira: Uh huh.
Daljeet: - and I gave him all the document and he sought clarification on certain things. I could see the change in the perception.
Niira: Very good, toh tujhe jo bhi chahiye na, to agar yeh log
respond nahin karte
fast, Rohit aur yeh sab
uh Manoj, tu mere se lele aake
, please, haan
(so whatever you need, if these people do not reply fast, Rohit and this Manoj, please come and take it from me, yes)?
Daljeet: Theek hai
(Okay), ma'am, okay okay.
Niira: Aur uh, I want you to do one more thing, like this uh...um...um...mere paas jo
Andhra government ki letter hai
(the letter I have from the Andhra government) -
Daljeet: Which letter?
Niira: - Andhra Chief Minister ki jo letter hai
(the Andhra Chief Minister's letter) -
Niira: - it's a very very scathing letter, haan
(Yes). If you give it to Prabhakar Sinha, but I need - will he give you front page?
Daljeet: I can speak to him now. I can speak to him openly now.
Daljeet: Yeah yeah, of course, I'll speak to him openly.
Niira: But maybe we'll do it for Monday, right?
Daljeet: Yeah yeah, of course. I can speak to him tomorrow.
Niira: No but you take a call but I need prominence on it, you see, it's so critical ke woh...uska jo
front page ka
impact hoga na
(that this...the front page impact)...
Daljeet: Yeah yeah, that will be like uh...
(Yes), that's what I really need. But I can give it, but only if I get that commitment.
Daljeet: Okay, I'll speak to him tomorrow, about this thing.
Niira: Okay, great then, thank you, thank you.
Daljeet: Okay, ma'am. And uh, just wanted to check: Was Mukesh Ambani in town today?
Niira: Yes he is, he's at President. He came in this evening -
Niira: Usual meetings jo hote hain aapki
(the usual meetings you have)...
Daljeet: He met PMO and Finance Secretary and all that.
Niira: Yeah, that's right, yeah.
Daljeet: Okay, okay. Because ET was running and those people have been calling everybody -
Daljeet: But since uh they've lost credibility, CNBC didn't run that story.
Niira: Nahin but the question is ki tum bata do kii
(you tell that) you don't comment on his appointment -
Daljit: Okay -
Niira: You can give a standard answer...
