ART OF SAY­ING NOTH­ING

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

On April 23, a day be­fore the Par­lia­ment ses­sion be­gan, the group of min­is­ters on me­dia called a press con­fer­ence. Kapil Sibal, Ghu­lam Nabi Azad, Pawan Bansal and V. Narayanasamy faced ques­tions. Did they set Delhi on fire with their an­swers? Well, no. Try this:

On the Lok­pal Bill

“The PM called a meet­ing of all the floor lead­ers in the Ra­jya Sabha and tried to nar­row down the dif­fer­ences. Still, six is­sues re­main over which there are dif­fer­ences.” — V. Narayanasamy Congress leader

On HazareRamdev tie-up

“It’s a good thing when peo­ple come to­gether. We also want the gov­ern­ment and Op­po­si­tion to come to­gether.” — Kapil Sibal Hu­man Re­source De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter

On quota

RTE “If you read the act, there is no con­fu­sion. If you don’t read it, then there is a lot of con­fu­sion.” On the next pres­i­dent

“It is a very big is­sue. No po­lit­i­cal party has the num­bers. Who­ever will come will be a con­sen­sus can­di­date.”

On Te­lan­gana

“We have con­cluded our dis­cus­sions. But no final decision has been taken so far.”

On Omar’s rant against AFSPA

“The J&K Chief Min­is­ter gives his opin­ions on Twit­ter ev­ery day. This is one of those opin­ions.” — Ghu­lam Nabi Azad Union Health Min­is­ter
