A clear case of misunderstanding, says Tehelka

NEW DELHI: With the interview by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi creating a political storm, Tehelka weekly on Saturday night termed the issue "a clear case of misunderstanding" and said ``any errors'' in it were ``inadvertent and regretted.''

"This seems to be a clear case of misunderstanding. Mr. Gandhi thought he was having a casual chat whereas our reporter took it to be a proper interview," the weekly said in a statement here, barely a few hours after rubbishing the Congress claim that Mr. Gandhi had not given any interview.

"Any errors in the interview are inadvertent and regretted," it said issuing a second statement in the day in the midst of the political controversy over Mr. Gandhi's remark that there was "no trace of governance" in the Centrally-ruled and poll-bound Bihar.

The statement also described as a "pity" that the issue was being "politicised" by other parties and "a storm in a tea cup is being created."

Issuing the fresh statement, the weekly said it "overrides the earlier statements."

Earlier, Tehelka dismissed the Congress contention and asserted that the interview with Mr. Gandhi was "formal" and there was "nothing casual or private about it."
