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.....👍✌

Saturday, 16 August 2014: In a clear signal that 28 mining leases would soon be operational resuming iron ore extraction in the state, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that the government will not challenge the recent High Court order which has asked the government to renew these leases.

The 28 mining leases in the state had got respite from the Goa Bench of Bombay High Court last week. The lease owners had already paid the duty under Indian Stamp Duty (Goa amendment) Act, 2012 as part of the renewal process.

"The mining lease owners trusted government when no one else did it. I don't need to challenge the High Court judgement as it clearly says that the lease deeds can be executed subject to the conditions laid down by the Apex court in the writ petition," Parrikar told reporters here yesterday. The mine owners had paid the stamp duty to the government despite Apex Court imposing the ban on the activity and industry's future was uncertain, he said.

The chief minister said the government would consider renewing these 28 leases.

"These mine owners paid me money (in the form of stamp duty), from which government generated revenue to the tune of Rs 435 crores. I managed to pay salaries of the government servants from this amount. Hence we would consider them within the framework of our mining policy, which would be discussed in detail on Monday on the floor of the House, next week," Parrikar said.

A division bench comprising Justice U V Bakre and Ranjit More had directed the state to execute the lease deed under Mines and Minerals Development Regulation (MMRD) Act.
