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.....👍✌

Essar Oil Ltd: Breaks Out
Essar Oil is a fully integrated oil and gas company of international scale with strong presence across the hydrocarbon value chain from exploration and production to refining and oil retail.
Essar Oil said it will allot 3.88 crore equity shares at Rs.138 per share on conversion of 1,150 foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) of $100,000 each aggregating to $115 million which were issued on 15 June 2010 to Essar Energy Holdings. The company will also allot 4.50 crore equity shares at Rs.153 per share on conversion of 1,470 FCCBs of $100,000 each aggregating to $147 million which were issued on 9 July 2010 to Essar Energy Holdings.
The promoter group company Essar Energy Holdings held 19.83% stake in Essar Oil (as per the shareholding pattern as on 30 September 2013).
Lalit Kumar Gupta, chief executive officer, Essar Oil Ltd, in a very recent interview with a Business Channel, says the company’s promoters are converting the Foreign Currency Convertible Bond (FCCB) in order to boost the company’s networth. Additionally, Gupta said that the company has high interest costs of Rs.3000 crore per annum, but it is likely to be reduced substantially by USD 150-200 million (Rs.15-20 crore).
