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.....👍✌

Schools, Church, Panchayats Demand Resumption of Mining in Goa[Editor: Resumption of mining in Goa, will be a boon for the Western India Shipyard Ltd (Rs.3.05), apart from the general mining and shipping (and ports) sectors]
Panaji, Thursday, June 12, 2014: Various institutions in Goa's mining belt, including a church and a school, have appealed Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to resume mining in the state for accelerating the economic activity.
Several representations were sent to Parrikar last week by village panchayats, a school, transport contractors and a church, claiming that besides economic slowdown, the developmental works which were taken by mining firms as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) have also ceased.
Gananath English High School, an institution at Nirancal village, 70 kms away from Panaji, has told the Chief Minister that they are finding it difficult to get required number of students as many families have migrated in search of alternate employment, since the closure of mining industry.
"The children of those who were employed in the mining industry have left the school. This is having an impact on our new admissions. This is also a situation with the schools in the areas of Usgao, Tisk, Codli, Kothambi and Panchawadi," the letter signed by school headmaster Girish Tendulkar reads.
"Generally the strength in our school and also of similar other institutions in rural areas is low and now it has become much less. Some schools are not even meeting the minimum strength required to run a school and are on the verge of closure," he said.
Fr Savio Viegas, Parish Priest of Immaculate Conception Church in Dabal village, in a representation to Parrikar has requested for resumption of mining.
"I on behalf of the church committee and the villagers, request you to renew the mining lease of Codli Mine belonging to Sesa Sterlite and start mining operations at the earliest so that the sufferings of people of this village shall stop and our village and its constituents shall start earning and thrive as in the past," he has said.
Fr Viegas has said that the CSR initiative by mining firms was helpful for the church and a school run by it.
"The mining companies always give a helping hand to the villagers around. They have been a great support for our church and also to Immaculate Conception School at Dabhal," he said.
