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.....👍✌

Tata Steel targets 8.5 MT sales in India, says prices may rise
Steel Authority of India (SAIL) was recommended yesterday at Rs.47.70.
"In 2013-14, we are targeting a sale of 1 million tonnes over and above the 7.5 million tonnes sold in FY'13. This implies a yearly volume growth of around 13.3 per cent," a company spokesperson said.
Hinting that the firm was on track to achieve the target, he said, "In the first quarter of FY 13-14, we have achieved a year-on-year volume growth of 26 per cent despite slow growth in the Indian market."
Tata Steel said 98 percent of the volumes sold in the April-June quarter were in the domestic market. The company sold 2.01 million tonnes of steel in Q1.
"Our branding initiative and market research gives us an edge over the other market players and we believe that we are on track to achieve our annual volume growth target," he said.
On the outlook for steel prices, he said, "There is a definite pressure in the market during the seasonally weak monsoon time and also due to the weak economic growth in the country."
However, there is scope for increasing domestic steel prices, which are generally set in line with international prices that have risen in recent times.
"At the same time, the rupee has depreciated meaningfully, which gives an opportunity to the domestic steel makers to increase prices in India. So, there is a definite scope but the timing of any price increase would depend on the market condition," he said.
With the rupee's drop, imports become costlier and steel shipments from overseas may decline, creating a supply gap and helping domestic manufacturers to cash in on the shortfall.
