Hundreds began gathering near Chandy's office from 10 am as word spread about Tendulkar's visit to meet the chief minister to promote Tendulkar's newly acquired team in the Indian Super League.
When Chandy reached his office, he was visibly shocked to see that the media had almost taken over his official room.
Soon, senior ministers including KM Mani and PK Kunhalikutty too reached Chandy's room, and so did Chandy's son and daughter as well as all his staff members.
