    Salve: Mr. Chadha cannot give me an opportunity of being heard. Complainants cannot give such opportunities. This is a muddle of issues.

    Salve: But here, this is a politically polarized debate and I don’t want to be a part of this. Look at this from Mr. Mohan’s point of view. He doesn’t run Facebook. He works for an American company, he will be in trouble if he puts forth his views on India’s government.

    J. Kaul: For ascertainment of views anyone can be asked. That’s the reason I asked you at a threshold you don’t want to appear or I may or may not answer the questions.

    Salve: I am not saying that any court will control the functioning of the house. But the committee is outside the house. Your privilege is to work under the core functions of the house.

    J. Roy: Through this preposition you are trying to say that since the summoning is by a committee which is not the house, it is not covered by the privilege.

    J. Kaul: The emphasis is more on the subject matter of committee and not on how different the committee is from the house.
