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.....👍✌

Bank shares turn positive after September trade data
The NSE bank index turned positive, up 0.5 percent after earlier falling as much as 1.9 per cent earlier in the day after September trade deficit came in better than expected at $6.7 billion, dealers said.

The narrower trade deficit, as signalled by the fall in imports, bodes well for the current account balance, thus supporting the currency and reducing some of the inflationary pressures, analysts said.

"A lower current account deficit will also ease the RBI's constraints on rupee-related concerns, which would help in reducing the exchange-rate led inflation pressures and in turn help in limiting expectations over repo rate hikes," said Siddhartha Sanyal, an economist for Barclays in Mumbai.

Punjab National BankBSE 1.88 % was up 1 per cent after earlier falling as much as 1.9 per cent while State Bank of IndiaBSE 0.04 % pared losses, down 0.5 per cent compared to a 2.1 per cent fall earlier in the day.
