The next 4 weeks are going to be crucial for Zee Jindal saga to next round of pre-Diwali fireworks. The victory trumpets at Zee camp post-general elections are still blowing loud declaring to have settled the Principal Score pending for 18 months. The interest, some people in the know claim, is set to trickle in slowly as the files related to coal and iron ore mining get dusted in the corridors of power.
A section of observers claim that Subhash Chandra has won this round emphatically by hitting the bull’s eye. A different section of watchers claim that the sharpest shooter Naveen Jindal is not an easy prey for Subhash Chandra to swap like a fly. Whilst Subhash Chandra fans keep claiming that the younger icon from Hissar is the one who bowed down finally, Former MP Jindal’s fan following is quick to rubbish the growing buzz. Jindal however has been silent for long maintaining a low profile outside the public glare, as Subhash continues on his networking spree with the new BJP government at the Center.
Silent murmurs from an out-of-favor section of Zee Camp still smirk on their boss’s ignorance of the rival camp having struck blows that have hit a low profile business of Subhash Chandra hard enough for him to consider a short-term patch up plan. Jindal insiders claim ignorance on any attack having been unleashed by the Polo Back 4 yet. One section of the media shares that the media arm of Subhash Chandra is too strong even for a Focus-sed Naveen Jindal to face, and the senior baron from Hissar will always have an edge in temperament and influence unless the younger flag-bearer of Hissar himself re-enters the Kurukshetra.
“Zee suffered a loss of face, Jindal is suffering losses in business by taking on Subhash Chandra head-on. Look at his steel business, which is hungry for iron-ore supplies from Orissa. The Coal Mall for Jindal is remains locked, leaving him to wait for his turn towards the end. The policies under which Zee operates have given Subhash ample scope to flourish further. Rival camps may under-play their defeats and over-pay victories. It finally comes down to who manages his business better and holds the other by the horn”, a close watcher observes.
Another insider feels that Subhash Chandra is a much-refined player of this game and Jindal a rookie. Nor does Jindal have a power media in his control to play with honor of his bête noire. A call from Subhash Ji to any media owner is enough for a media attack on his empire. Conversely, Jindal is not well acquainted with Media Owners Club, having remained aloof for 3 months. The insider claims that unless Subhash Chandra gives a word to stop the Zee reverse attack, the war cannot be declared as over. Seeding if next seeds of bitter gourd are being sprinked all over the Jindal playground by Zee to re-initiate fire and catch Naveen Jindal in a slumber sleep.
Sources close to both sides claim that the other side is on a back foot and retreating after tight slaps on their faces. Who to believe and who to dis-believe is subject to inclinations of the watchers. The deep-rooted bitterness amongst both Bhai’s from Hissar is being said to be highly acidic to be neutralized under any circumstances permanently. The coming four weeks starting today will define a great deal for shape of things to come in near future. The round starting with a loud caveat, Disadvantage Jindal, Cakewalk for Subhash.
