Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

I aggressively bought the shares of PVP Ventures Ltd (Rs.5.78) for some of the clients for whom I do the trading, in their trading / demat accounts, as I strongly feel that the scrip is going to race past Rs.10, in the next few trading sessions

Jan 24, 2014: Noted industrialist Potluri Vara Prasad (PVP) made a vain bid to get into the good books of TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu with an eye on Vijayawada parliamentary constituency ticket recently, according to Telugu Desam Party sources.

Exactly a year after the new in-charge was named, an attempt was made for change of guard in the constituency.

A senior leader of Krishna district, sources said, accompanied Mr. Vara Prasad and introduced him to Mr. Naidu. The TDP chief welcomed him, but decided to show restraint and suggested him to look for some other constituency. Mr. Naidu told them that he found no valuable reason to replace the present in-charge, sources added.

Mr. Vara Prasad’s associates and well-wishers were said to have advised him to contest on TDP ticket in the wake of recent political developments like the possibility of the TDP aligning with the BJP.

The non-conducive situation in YSR Congress was another major reason behind Mr. Prasad approaching the TDP, sources said.

The TDP senior leader was learnt to have tried to garner the support of sitting MLAs from segments in Vijayawada Parliamentary constituency. They, however, politely declined to extend him any support.

The party leaders from East Krishna also expressed similar views and did not encourage the proposed replacement. He, however, managed to gather support of senior party leaders in Hyderabad and arranged a meeting with Mr. Naidu, which did not yield desired results.

It may be recalled that the party leadership zeroed in on Kesineni Srinivas (Nani) at a time it was searching for a candidate who could shoulder the expenses involved in the ‘Vastunna Meekosam’ padayatra of Mr. Naidu as well and not just election expenses.

The padayatra had changed the equations in the party a year ago.

Mr. Nani, a lateral entrant into the party, emerged as a successful contender for Vijayawada Lok Sabha ticket. It marred the prospects of former TDP Urban president Vallabhaneni Vamsi.

Sitting MLAs decline to support the PVP candidature.
