Shailaja Bajpai: Do you believe there will ever be a political will to give autonomy?
I have seen the swing turn around. If there’s a will, everything is possible.

Shobhana Subramanian: Have you at any point seen any iota of will?
I saw some amount of it in Ms Soni. Mr Jaipal Reddy was also like that.

Shobhana Subramanian: You have never found it in Mr Tewari?
He’s been ill. I found him one of the sharpest ministers. If only we had a one-to-one, without these fellows coming up, maybe we could have carried on. It was our collective misfortune.

This Idea Exchange was held before the results were declared.
