    Male voice thought to be Shankar Iyer; Female voice thought to be Niira Radia.
    The recording is clear at Radia’s end. The Shankar Iyer end has more ambient noise – the hum of people.

    Phone rings – standard “tring tring” ring tone.

    Male Voice – thought to be Shankar Iyer,
    Hello.

    Female Voice – thought to be Niira Radia

    Haan,You met him ?

    Male Voice

    Haan, I met him. So woh keh raha hai ki aisa kuch hone wala hai nahin. As far as he understands.
    (pause) they keep some portfolios (pause) with the PM

    Female Voice

    They have kept IT, Labour and …. And .. this one. IT, Telecom, Labour and Chemicals & Fertilizers

    Male Voice

    Haan, Chemicals & Fertilizers

    (pause 2 seconds) maybe steel also, they will keep themselves

    Female Voice

    Steel. No . No. They have not kept steel.

    Male Voice
    Ok…ok…(then something inaudible, possibly to someone else in the same space)

    Female Voice

    According to my congress source Steel is not there. Chemical Fertilizer, IT, Telecom, and … and labour.

    Male Voice
    Labour – ok, ok, ok… chalo theek hai …. (almost as though to hang up)

    Female Voice (interjecting)

    No, the thing I want to ask you is he in the house or where is he

    Male Voice
    No, he is in the house only

    Female Voice
    How come Balu left ?

    (back ground noise in the male’s room increases. Other voices, male)
    (word muffled)……hinted I didn’t want to give him infrastructure

    Female Voice
    The PM Said

    Male Voice
    (still noises in the BG)
    The minister hasn’t told me, someone else told me.

    Female Voice
    What?

    Male Voice
    (still noise and conversation in the background
    They actually, some people here only told me, they okayed the names of the ministers (sound of incoming SMS) – jaise telecom, velecom, IT, and then they said to Maran and T.R.Balu no for infrastructure portfolio.

    Female Voice
    So, Chemical Fertilizer is so important.

    Male Voice
    But it is not infrastructure development, na…. (pause) infrastructure ke andhar its like – which depends on development further … chemical fertilizer industry which had issues – private sector and all these things. So it doesn’t have too much of a difference. They don’t want to give that. Baalu took it … ‘how can they do this to me’ …

    Female voice
    Hmmmm

    Male voice
    That’s why they are keeping labour
    Female voice
    Hmmmm

    Male voice
    (laughs)
    Female voice
    Hmmm … so they are giving belabour to him?

    Male
    He was not keen on Maran on..

    Female voice
    Who was not keen on Maran ?

    Male Voice
    PM..

    Female voice
    PM na. I know that. Media is unnecessarily creating non sense.

    Male Voice & female voice start speaking simultaneously

    Female voice
    The problem is, but the problem is that the Congress is not communicating this to DMK directly. They need to communicate this.

    Male Voice

    They have communicated. Yesterday night.

    Female Voice
    They have communicated ?

    Male Voice
    They have communicated yesterday.

    Female Voice
    Saying what ?

    Male Voice
    Saying that (unclear word) … is ok and … and…

    Female voice prompts
    And ….

    Male voice
    (noise still in background)
    And telecom is ok. Hmmm. Ha… But we cannot give more, other infrastructure because we don’t want to give it to Balu and Maran

    Female voice
    Haan Haan

    Male voice
    Still lots of noise in the background
    There is a deadlock situation on.

    Female voice
    No. Now the question is that they have to say no to Maran and Balu, right ? and give Azagiri, Kanni & Raja

    Male voice
    They don’t want to give them heavy trust … a new face

    Female voice
    Who. Congress ?

    Male
    Congress.

    Female Voice
    No. no. they are giving Azagiri Cabinet, they said it is left up to the Leader to decide that.

    Male Voice
    No, but they are only giving 3 na. in that case

    Female Voice
    Haan. To maran ko drop karma padega, na

    Male Voice
    Wahi problem hai na saare ke saare. Maran seems to have been offered MoS also.

    Female Voice
    MoS toh di, par usne mana kar diya.

    Male Voice
    Haan. Let us see

    (pause 2 seconds)
    Male Voice

    Tabhi toh I couldn’t speak to boss in detail. Because so many people were inside.
    (unclear word) , Family and all these things – who ever is camping.
    ______ had gone in, kehta hai ki bad me kuch sulah ke baat karta hoon

    Female Voice
    Hmmm …

    Male Voice
    Theek hai…
    Once i get some more …

    Female voice
    Kanni told me that the Congress has not told us clearly. Not spelt out what they want. What they are telling us, they are telling through the media. They should meet my father and tell him directly.
    So it is contrary to what your minister is saying.

    Male voice
    Ok … I got this , yesterday late evening

    Female Voice

    No she told me just now…

    Male voice (overlapping conversation)
    To theek hai, mein pata karvata hoon….

    Female voice
    Haan, because I just relayed that message to Congress

    Male Voice
    Haan. Haan.

    Female voice
    If they don’t want Maran … recording ends abruptly.
