Madan Mitra: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Snake charming

What he said:

“I didn’t know whether to invite players or call snake charmers to get rid of the snakes that crawled all over.”

West Bengal’s sports minister, Madan Mitra, laments the state of Kolkata’s Salt Lake Stadium, slated to host the Argentine soccer team on the 2nd of September, 2011.

What he really meant:

“I’m tearing out my hair in frustration and disbelief. I can’t walk around the ground, how will footballers play?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Let’s play snake-and-ladders instead.”
