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.....👍✌

'Make in India' to be a reality in defence, says Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar
1 Dec, 2014: Defence holds huge potential for Indian industry and for contributing to industrial production. Of course, there have been problems over the past decades and we have not concentrated on this industry. For customers, it is a disadvantage because unless you are very sure you cannot invest. All those aspects have been considered and we are working on policies where 'Make In India' becomes reality in this sector.
I thank (Arun) Jaitley for helping me get 80% of the work on track so I can complete it in the next couple of months. All my files ultimately land in on his table.
As regards manufacturing of major defence equipment by the private sector, it depends on the quantum, technology and technology transfer. There are many issues, but we will push through this over one or two years. If we are the biggest customer, we should get things done in our country.
We have been developing tanks. With some improvement and tightening of screws we can get it right. We are developing fighters, but a few items we cannot afford to develop because either they are too little in number or the technology involved is too heavy.
Ultimately, political and industrial minds need to go into it. The bureaucratic mind sometimes creates funny situations.
