With everybody stabbing everybody’s back in the Congress, NDTV anchor and reporter Sunetra Choudhury has set tongues wagging in Delhi with her account of an interaction with a politician in the news, in DNA:
“It wasn’t really a big, exclusive interview. He’d spoken to a rival channel and made wild allegations, and my editor wanted me to interview him as well.
“Dogged as we are, I landed at his place after he’d dodged my calls for 24 hours. I patiently sat with my cameraman while his flak catchers told me how busy “sir” had been all this while.
“‘Sure, I just need five minutes,’ I said.
“‘So, you’ve managed to track me down,’ he announced as we entered his study, accompanied by his young, female assistant. ‘But, sir, isn’t this the first time you named him?’ I asked.
“‘Well, you know, if you were to share a bed with me, then at night I’d be grinding my teeth and saying his name as well.'”
