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.....👍✌

Power Sector in India
Photo: Equitymaster.com
The Government of India, having recognized the necessity to improve upon the existing archaic power transmission and distribution system concomitantly along with investment in generation of power in the country, has drawn up ambitious plans for connecting the whole country with a common power grid and to electrify all houses in the country by 2016-20. There are separate agencies and plans for translating the objects of the government into reality.

Government of India having addressed the issue of power generation, has begun serious efforts to reduce the T&D losses from its peak level of 19% to about 6.5% in the next 5 years. This ambitious target calls for revamping of the entire power distribution mechanism in the country, which includes increasing the transmission voltages and making the system more and more tamper proof. 

The country started upgrading its grid capabilities under the aegis of PGCIL (Power Grid Corporation of India) from the existing 132 / 220 Kv to 400 / 765 Kv to bring the country’s power transmission system at par with other nations. 

The plans are on anvil to create a national back bone with transmission capability of 1200 Kv in the next five year plan. This has resulted in a very bright business opportunity for the companies in this space.

The advent of Nuclear Power Era in the country, while addressing the demand for the generation of the power, is expected to open another market front. The power generation by nuclear plants call for massive power evacuation lines to transmit the power generated by these mega power stations to the country’s grid. This holds another exciting business opportunity for the power companies in India. 

Recently, Piyush Goyal, the Minister of Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy, speaking at the World Economic Forum’s India Economic Summit 2014 said:
"Over the next five years, the Indian power sector would provide an investment potential of $250 billion of which $100 billion will come into the renewable energy sector and $50 billion for the transmission networks”. 
One of the biggest roadblocks facing the Indian economy has been the poor state of infrastructure in the country. It is said that lack of proper infrastructure shaves off about 2% of India's GDP growth every year. The power sector, which is the engine for growth in any economy, is facing a myriad of challenges and setbacks in India. Hence, it would be better if the current DIRECTION-LESS-NDA-GOVERNMENT, focuses more on the infrastructure sector.
