Chowdhury and Naidu: The conversation as it happened
Chowdhury said, "He knows me from many kilos before. Sir, many people worry about my weight but in this job, you need to throw your weight around." Naidu replied, "My simple suggestion is, reduce your weight and make efforts to increase weight of the party."
Renuka Chowdhury's farewell speech at the Upper House was, however, not only about exchange of digs. She said 11% women strength in the Rajya Sabha was pathetic. The Congress MP said from 'Shah Bano to Surpanakha', she witnessed making of history in her tenure.
