Presidential Elections: Support Dr.Meira Kumar

Bihar and Jharkhand governments have no choice but to support Dr.Meira Kumar. As defeat of "Bihar ki Beti" will invariably bring Shame to the Biharis and Jharkhandis (or erstwhile unified Bihar). Do you think that, people of Bihar will leave Nitish Kumar Scott - free, if Dr.Meira Kumar loses ? So, Nitish Kumar has very little option left but to support, Dr.Meira Kumar.

Moreover, if Nitish Kumar wants to fall in the BJP's well calculated electoral TRAP no one can save him in the next election.

Also, I am surprised to see Mr.Navin Pattanayak, so easily chewing the RSS bait. Orissa is a state, where there is large chunk of Tribal Christian voters loyal to the BJD (Biju Janata Dal). I am still to fathom, BJD's sudden electoral gamble of siding with the RSS and the BJP; when Mr.Pattanayak has been maintaining distance from them since some time.

Besides, the election of Dr.Meira Kumar, who is educated, experienced and very sober, might also correct some of the historical mistakes of not making her father, the Prime Minister of India.

Also, I don't think all the Muslim and Christian MPs and MLAs from the TDP and TRS will ever support a RSS backed Candidate, who acted against Dalit Christian and Muslin reservations. Therefore, invariably cross voting will take place, which might give the underdog, Ms.Kumar, a win. Support Dr.Meira Kumar, give a conscience vote and make her the 2nd Female President of India.

All the best to Dr.Meira Kumar.....👍✌

Apex Court Clears Hurdles For FDI In Multi-brand Retail
[Editor: Future Retail Ltd (Rs.145.85, BSE Code:523574), the erstwhile Pantaloon Retail Ltd, was already recommended in this blog for a price target of Rs.164. Now after this news, the price target has been increased to Rs.171]
New Delhi, May 1:  The Supreme Court has cleared the hurdles for implementing FDI in multi-brand retail sector, saying that the “consumer is king and if that is the philosophy behind the policy, then what is wrong.”

The apex court said the policy aimed at “throwing out” the middleman, who are a “curse to Indian economy” and “sucking” it, has to be “welcomed”.

A Bench headed by Justice R. M. Lodha said the policy does not suffer from any unconstitutionality or illegality requiring it to be quashed. “This court does not interfere in the policy matter unless the policy is unconstitutional, contrary to statutory provisions or arbitrary or irrational or there is total abuse of power.

“The impugned policy cannot be said to suffer from any of the vires,” the Bench, also comprising justices Madan B. Lokur and Kurien Jospeh, held while dismissing a PIL challenging the notification on the FDI in multi-brand retail sector.

The Bench in its order said “it is thus left to the choice of State governments whether or not to implement policy to allow FDI up to 51 per cent in multi-brand retail.”

The apex court further said there was no merit in the contention that the Centre has no authority to formulate FDI policy and the PIL filed by advocate M. L. Sharma has to be dismissed.
