    Rakesh: ah, hello
    Niira: haan rakesh
    Rakesh: (sorry?) got disconnected. Accha, quickly just tell me one thing
    Nira: mmmhhm
    Rakesh: why is that aa -ya you- you made the petition there in supreme court and
    Nira: mm
    Rakesh: you made government as an intervenor, am i right?
    Nira: No, they are respondent not intervenor.
    Rakesh: respondent
    Nira(simultaneously): Rakesh? haan
    Rakesh: but.. but that is what i wanted to check up because the other side has been repeatedly saying ki boss the government has not been given a notice or anything.
    Nira: no government has been given notice. I don’t know what they are talking about
    Rakesh: No. we we we wrote a we wrote a story
    Nira: in fact yours was a very good flash ek dum theek hai. they asked. they’ve been given notice. that’s very clear
    Rakesh: so which is why i was a bit confused ki what – matlab itna(?) jhagda kya hogaya isme. if they’re respondents why why other side should be so uncomfortable on it?
    Nira: unko nahin achha lagta hain na ki government ko aana chahiye. kya karein hum log abhi? unko tension apna hota hai.. I mean what’s that guy – Mahesh Agarwal came out and told CNBC

    Rakesh: haan
    Niira: ki usko poochha gaya ki tum log kya kar rahe ho gas ke saath to kehta hai hum vohi karenga hai jo anil ambani ka -uh i mean mukesh ambani kar rahaa hai. hum bechenge gas. usne bola you don’t have to trade.
    Rakesh interrupts and talks in parallel – unclear what he’s saying: even i heard that..
    Nira: He said it’s not called trading, it’s called selling. i mean come on i mean he thinks the world is a nn.. stupid or what?
    Rakesh: That’s when one of uhh one of this soni singh(?) rang me up. kehta hai notice nahin kiya. I checked up again. so i was still under confusion ki what is the position on that. That’s the reason i ring – i was ringing
    Nira: Nahin, government ko notice gaya hai aur
    Rakesh: No my my my my legal team guys- they say ki it is a intervenor not as a respondent. Earlier you wanted a respondent but registry said government cannot be made respondent so you’ll have to redo the option
    Nira: nahin aisa kuchh. Pehle bola na yeh teen din se pehle yeh log yehi baath kar rahein hain ki government should be- in that registrar ne roka.. aapko bhi pata hai ki registrar kabhi rokta nahin hai
    Rakesh: Nahin wo nahin rokega
    Nira: Kyun Sasan ke matter mein bhi
    Rakesh: haan
    Nira: inhone yehi saaz sehlaaya tha last time bhi ki government cannot be a uh respondent registrar ne aisa bola
    Rakesh: haan haan
    Nira: haan to registrar to har cheez inke kehne par nahin karega na?
    Rakesh: nahin registrar they cant they cant buy the (sound of horn)
    Nira: It’s not up to the registrar no? it’s up to the court to decide whether you want uh what i mean and it’s up to the government to decide that. humne to respondent(?) likhh ke bhej diya.
    Rakesh: aur… aur uske
    Nira: All sides have been issued notice
    Rakesh: nahin nahin but my my my my team members are still saying the high court team the supreme court team – we have a strong team in there they said still is still intervenor not as a – and thats what we had given thats the reason i just wanted to recheck with you.
    Nira: But you had given what – intervenor ki respondent?
    Rakesh: Shuru mein to hum logon ne notice diya -we we kept quiet on that ki government was issued the notice. not now about some time back supreme court we have a person called indu bhan
    Nira: mm
    Rakesh: she covers supreme court for us
    Nira: mm
    Rakesh: uh the corporate side and she she she gave a story it is a intervenor so and in the meanwhile one of the tony singh’s told me ki woh government ko notice nahin mila. to maine kahaa ki yeh kya majak ho gaya
    Nira: mm government ko notice gaya
    Rakesh: uh to notice gaya tha but just wanted to just confirm that
    Nira: mm nahin it’s gone it’s gone
    Rakesh: aur kya haal baki -how how’s your health?
    Nira(parallely): nahin sab theek
    Nira: I’m fine very fine. touch wood.
    Rakesh: soo
