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.....👍✌

India to ask US to remove 'wrongful' duties on HR steel exports

Tuesday, 03 Feb 2015: The Hindu Business Line reported that following the World Trade Organisation’s ruling against penal duties imposed by the US on hot rolled steel from Indian companies, New Delhi is compiling data on similar levies on other products in order to convince the US scrap them as well.

An official in the Commerce Ministry said that these items include lined paper products, PET film, commodity matchboxes, certain chemicals and at least 5 other steel products.

The Centre is also looking at how the US will implement the WTO ruling that held that CVD (countervailing duties) - levies to counter subsidised exports of a particular item - imposed by the US on hot rolled steel from India flouted global trade rules.

Proper implementation of the verdict would result in companies such as Essar, Jindal Steel and TATA Steel to resume their steel exports to the US. Indian steel companies had to almost stop all exports of hot rolled steel items to the US over the last few years as CVD ranging from 76% to 577% made their products highly uncompetitive.

Giving its verdict on a case filed by India against the US’ imposition of CVD or anti-subsidy duties on its hot-rolled steel products in December last year, the WTO upheld that the US practice of ‘cumulation’ or addition of subsidised and dumped imports while calculating the injury suffered by its industry due to subsidised imports was faulty.
