Senthil Chengalvarayan - President and Editorial Director of TV18, - Tatacom SEBI
Radia is upset in this conversation with Senthil about a story being run on CNBC TV 18 about Tata Communications and shows her tendency to bully and threaten the media when it shows or writes anything against her clients.
Senthil: Hi Niira
Radia: Senthil hi! Sorry to disturb you Senthil
Senthil: no.. no.. no.. not at all
Radia: I will sent you letter on… as well
Radia: Let me see what I get as a response. I call them in a while
Radia: Senthil… Siddharth (Zarabi, CNBC TV18 anchor) is continuing to run that story
Senthil: Ok let me.. because I … he says he is completely correct I .. I just wanted to… I just spoke to Udayan (Mukherjee, Managing Editor, CNBC TV18) as well
Senthil: No I… I.. we have written the letter .. just see the draft of the letter that gone to SEBI
Radia: They have sent a letter. Tata communications is just about to close on the letter to SEBI
Radia: because the fact is I mean it is not true in fact I checked with Bharti also. Checking with the them why do you issue statements like that?
Radia: and the view is needs you know its just mindless we are just… our standard statement.
Radia: We just issue all statements like that you know. Which is the fact.
Radia: I just looked at all statements they are all like that
Senthil: see.. see..see Siddharth says that somebody (some name) confirmed but immediate check again once
Radia: no because.. you know… otherwise…because we have to also notify the Stock Exchange as well as SEBI so we are doing that now
Radia: We are letting.. we are letting SEBI know that there seems to be some you know mischief here
Radia: but its…its not true at all. I won't lie to you, you know otherwise it's not true. It is not a quarrel situation.
Senthil: no..no.. I .. I randomly.. let me just… just talk to… just tell him because the moment journalists says that I have got it own my own.
Senthil: So let me just…
Radia: Senthil if you want I can forward you the white paper that's in circulation.
Radia: It's one of those white papers again.
Radia: It came to me from ET (Economic Times) yesterday
Radia: It is the same thing that started with ETs and my reaction against Rahul Joshi was..
Radia: Rahul why don't you just carry it on front page and then I will leave to Tata's to decide what they want to do with ET…
Radia: He pulled of the story altogether because he realized it was a white paper it came to me.
Radia: And now its gone to CNBC after it didn't succeed in ET
Radia: and I think your guys are just falling for this
