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.....👍✌

Gold, silver prices rise on brisk buying, global cues
New Delhi, Jan 24, 2014: Gold prices rose by Rs 200 to Rs 30,370 per ten grams in the national capital on Friday on brisk buying by stockists for the marriage season amid a firm global trend. 

Silver prices also jumped by Rs 500 to Rs 45,000 per kg on increased offtake by jewellery fabricators and industrial units. A similar trend was noticed in Mumbai as gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity recovered Rs 125 each to Rs 30,050 and Rs 29,900 per ten gram, respectively, while silver shot up by Rs 600 to Rs 45,850 per kg. 

Traders said brisk buying by stockists for the marriage season amid a firm global trend, where gold jumped to the highest close in nine weeks as the dollar plunged, boosting demand for the precious metal as an alternative investment, mainly supported the uptrend.

Shifting of funds from falling equities to rising bullion also influenced the sentiment to some extent, they said. 

On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity zoomed up by Rs 200 each to 30,370 and Rs 30,170 per ten grams, respectively. Sovereign remained steady at Rs 25,100 per piece of eight gram.
