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.....👍✌

RBI buys Rs.6,231 crore worth of bonds
The move is aimed at putting money back into the banking system and cooling off bond yields
Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday bought Rs.6,231 crore worth of bonds from the secondary market in its first bond buy-back programme since it tightened liquidity in mid-July, to put money back into the banking system and cool off bond yields.
The offer was to buy up to Rs.8,000 crore of bonds. Details of the bond auction, published on the RBI website, showed the central bank bought the bonds almost in line with the prevalent market price.

RBI offered to buy four securities maturing between 2022 and 2030, including the benchmark 10-year bond maturing in 2023, which was trading at 8.24% before the cut-off results were published.
The cut-off yield at which RBI bought this bond was at 8.2571%, auction results showed. The yields on this 10-year bond closed at 8.2635% at 5pm.

RBI had offered to buy bonds from the secondary market on Tuesday after the 10-year bond yield touched 9.49%, highest since September 2001, making borrowing costs prohibitively costly for the government. The yield came down the next day on RBI’s decision to buy bonds from the secondary market, at regular intervals.
