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.....👍✌

MUMBAI: India's technical textile industry is expected to grow at a rate of 20 per cent annually to touch $ 36 billion by 2016-17, according to experts.
"Technical textile is an important part of the overall textile sector in India. Not only has it grown at an annual rate of 11 per cent during 2006-11, but is also estimated to expand at a rate of 20 per cent to reach $ 36 billion by 2016-17," Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Managing Director Raj Manek told reporters here today.
Technical textiles are products manufactured primarily for their technical performance and functional properties rather than aesthetic and decorative characteristics.
The technical textile industry in India, whose current size is estimated at $ 17 billion, is seen as the next hub for both manufacturing and consumption, he said.
India is seen as a key growth market for the sector, given the sheer size of its population. Cost-effectiveness, durability and versatility have made technical textile popular in the domestic market; and with the discovery of new applications every day, the growth of the industry is only expected to amplify, Manek added.
He was speaking on the sidelines of 'Techtextil India 2013', a conference on technical textile. Its 4th edition opened here today and witnessed participation from over 182 exhibitors from Austria, India, Turkey, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Netherlands, UK and US, among others.
At the two-day event, the participants presented the newest products, services and technologies available in the sector.
A symposium organised tomorrow will provide industry leaders, scholars, government representatives and professionals opportunities for dissemination and exchange of ideas related to the industry.
