From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 19 October 2018

The Indian High Commissioner to New Zealand says he's deeply hurt and disappointed by comments from Jami-Lee Ross and Simon Bridges that Chinese MPs are more valuable than Indian MPs. On Wednesday, Mr Ross made public a recording of a telephone conversation where the pair talk about potential National Party candidates. That was the High Commissioner of India, Sanjiv Kohli, speaking to RNZ reporter Jessie Chiang.
