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.....👍✌

Banks turn busy to raise capital
The Centre has earmarked Rs. 14,000 crore for capital infusion into banks in the current fiscal

With the Union Government going ahead with its capital infusion plans, many public sector banks have scheduled their extraordinary general meetings (EGM) in the coming fortnight to seek the shareholders’ approval to shore up capital.

While some of them will be making preferential allotment of shares at a premium to the Government of India, others, apart from receiving capital infusion from government, will go for private placement of shares or qualified institutional placement (QIP). The Centre has earmarked Rs. 14,000 crore for capital infusion into banks in the current fiscal. While Punjab National Bank and Indian Overseas Bank have scheduled their EGMs on December 16 for preferential allotment of shares to Government, Corporation Bank has announced that it would also seek the shareholders’ nod for a private placement/QIP. 

Andhra Bank has convened its EGM on December 19 for both preferential issue and QIP/private placement. Dena Bank and Allahabad Bank will seek shareholders nod on December 24 for this purpose. . Canara Bank, for its part, has convened its EGM on December 30 for the preferential issue of shares to the Government.
