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.....👍✌

Reliance Power may gain as UMPP concerns ease
Mumbai, 27 Dec, 2013: Shares of Reliance Power today rose by nearly 3 per cent on the possibility of CBI closing its preliminary enquiry to probe coal block allocation to a power project in Sasan in Madhya Pradesh run by Anil Ambani's firm.
The CBI is of the view that the allocation is a policy decision vetted by group of ministers.
CBI sources said it has come to light that use of surplus coal from the Sasan UMPP was approved on two separate occasions by two EGoMs. They said since it was a policy decision, CBI was not likely to question it.
However, they added that any final decision has not been taken over the closure and any such decision can only be taken after taking into consideration the views of the Supreme Court.
The sources said they have informed the Supreme Court about the preliminary enquiry in their status report and agency would proceed according to further directions of the apex court.
After the registration of the preliminary enquiry, ADAG spokesperson had said in a statement that "we welcome the independent time-bound enquiries by the CBI, monitored by the Supreme Court, which will clearly establish our bonafides".
It will "once and for all prove beyond doubt that we have been the unfortunate victims of a mischievous campaign of calumny and vilification conducted at the behest of our unscrupulous corporate rivals over the past 5 years," the statement said.
The allocation of coal mines to the Sasan project was done to a 100 percent government-owned company in the year 2006 when Reliance Power had not even won the project, it said adding the government disinvested its shares to Reliance pursuant to a global tender in the year 2007.
The preliminary enquiry was registered on the directions of the Supreme Court that had asked the CBI to probe 14 issues including supply of low floor buses by Tata motors to Tamil Nadu government, grant of spectrum and alleged market manipulations and hammering of stocks by Unitech.
