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.....👍✌

Sensex falls over 500 points; Nifty slips below 8250 as oil dips below $50/bbl
NEW DELHI, 6 Jan, 2015: The S&P BSE Sensex plunged as much as 512 points in trade on Tuesday following Asian markets, which were trading lower as investors are starting to worry that the prolonged slump is signaling a weaker global economy.
"That fear shook financial markets Monday as oil plunged again, dipping below $50 for the first time in more than five years. The drop prompted a big sell-off, not just among energy stocks, but across the entire stock market," AP reported.
Tracking the momentum, the 50-share Nifty index also cracked over 100 points to slip below its crucial psychological level of 8250, weighed down by losses in auto, banks, capital goods and IT stocks.
At 09:20 a.m.; the 30-share index was trading at 27,426.62, down 416 points or 1.49 per cent. It touched a high of 27698.93 and a low of 27,330.47 in trade today.
The Nifty was at 8259 down 119 points or 1.4 per cent. It touched a high of 8327.85 and a low of 8229.35 in trade today.
The S&P BSE Midcap Index was down 1.3 per cent and BSE S&P Smallcap Index edged lower by 1.1 per cent.
NTPC (up 0.2 per cent) and HUL (up 0.05 per cent) were among the major Sensex gainers.
Tata Motors (down 3.3 per cent), Sesa Sterlite (down 2.1 per cent), ONGC (down 2.2 per cent), Tata Power (down 1.9 per cent) and Infosys (down 1.8 per cent) were the major index losers.
