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.....👍✌

Bullion association calls for trade bandh on March 10
MUMBAI,  MAR 1: The Indian Bullion Association has called for an all-India bullion trade bandh on March 10 to protest against various trade restrictive policies rolled out by the Government to meet the widening current account deficit.

Among the list of 10 major demands, the Association wants Government to immediately abolish the 20:80 scheme which ensures that traders place orders for new consignments of gold imports only after exporting 20 per cent of gold already imported.

This measure has led to a huge shortage of gold in the domestic market and the premium for gold booking by traders has jumped substantially.

The Association also wants the Government to crack down on gold smuggling and reduce the import duty on gold from 10 per cent to 2 per cent. It has demanded that the unnecessary harassment and seizure of gold by Government officials should stop with immediate effect.
