Political Buzz : Whose speech is it anyway?

Ministers and bureaucrats who accompany a chief minister on a visit abroad are usually unable to hog the headlines and this is for obvious reasons. But one minister who visited the US recently alongwith chief minister garu is still trying to figure out how to get the best deal out of it.
Industries minister J Geeta Reddy on the said trip apparently gave a stirring speech which dwelt elaborately on the emergence of Telugu pride from the days of the battle of Talikota. Not unexpectedly the speech went unreported both in the Indian American media as well as the local media back home.

A little bird tells us that A K Goel, special chief secretary in the planning department, has taken it upon himself to spread the word about the oratorial skills of the minister by bringing out a book with a multi-colour wrapper and circulating this to all and sundry.

For those wondering why a speech delivered by a minister is being circulated by a babu, the story doing the rounds is that it is Goel himself who drafted the speech. So is it publicising the minister's speech, or, well, oneself?
