The victory in Karnataka has brought a cheer to the Congress camp. The celebrations brought out the lighter side of the Finance Minister P Chidambaram as her turned into a 'TV reporter'. The Finance Minister was being questioned by reporters on Karnataka when he saw senior BJP leader Jaswant Singh coming out of the Parliament. Promptly, Chidambaram took the mike of a TV reporter and posed the question to Jaswant Singh.A "Don't you credit Congress with victory?" the senior Congress leader asked Singh. "It is a message to all political parties. The people watch very closely. Whoever forms the government must deliver," the Finance Minister said, reacting to a question whether the Karnataka Assembly poll result is a larger message to the UPA government as the people of Karnataka voted out BJP on the issue of corruption. Agreeing with Chidambaram, Singh said people vote for governance and "if you stop governance, people will vote you out". "He is a gentleman," Chidambaram said about Singh while returning mike to the reporter.
