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.....👍✌

Twist to Cybercity dispute
Kochi: In a twist to the Cybercity controversy, a top official of the Housing Development and Infrastructure Limited (HDIL) on Thursday clarified that there was no move to sell the land intended for the mega IT project.

“We sought joint promoters for the project. There is no outright sale of the land intended,” K.V. John, the project manager of Cybercity told a private TV channel.

The 70 acres of HMT land at Kalamassery was bought by Blue Star Realtors Private Limited, a subsidiary of HDIL, which proposed to invest around Rs2,300 crore to set up a state-of-the-art IT park in 2008.

But an advertisement in newspapers recently said that company was putting up the land for sale. The clarification by the top official, in Mumbai, added to the controversy as officials in Kochi refused to confirm it.

Meanwhile, Opposition Leader V.S. Achuthanandan threatened to move the court if the company went ahead with the sale plan. “It amounted to cheating the people,” he told media persons in Aluva.

It may be recalled that a section in the CPM, supporting the then chief minister Achuthanandan, had expressed displeasure over the allotment of HMT land for the project which promised to create 60,000 jobs.
