Highly disturbed on hearing that Saji, the high flier now down and out, had vowed to spill the beans about the former strongman, several intimates called on the latter to get the story from the horse’s mouth.
In reply to solicitous queries by his loyalists, the former strongman expressed his suspicion that there could be a hidden hand behind the threat coming from his onetime lap dog. “I am tempered enough to be able tell chalk from cheese. They want to make their political living off the supposed misdeeds of mine for the next five years. Therefore, there can be many such threats against me in store. I am ready to face them all…”
A mother-in-law whom Saji had introduced to the echelons of power and her doings hostile to the former strongman also figured in their discussion, they say.
