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.....👍✌

Jaiprakash Power Ventures Ltd and FCCB

J P Power Ventures Ltd (Rs.11.10) has to pay $200 million worth of foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) which were due on 13 February but are likely to be rescheduled. The bondholders will vote on the firms’s proposed repayment schedule in a 30 March meeting.

As part of the proposed rescheduled payment agreement, the firm looks to extend the maturity date of the FCCB to 13 February 2016. The proposed repayment schedule will include an upfront payment of $25 million on the effective date of rescheduling. Further, the company proposes to pay another $75 million on the receipt of the sale proceeds for its two hydropower plants to JSW Energy Ltd. The remaining amount is to be paid on or before 13 February 2016. Hence this issue is more or less closed. 

Debt for the Jaypee group is seen at around Rs.60,000 crore, of which Jaiprakash Power Ventures alone had debt of Rs.17,887.72 crore at the end of the September quarter. The firm has started talks with its bankers to refinance debt worth Rs.10,000 crore. 

In the last two years, the group has been selling assets to reduce debt. In a recent deal, Aditya Birla Group’s Ultratech Cement Ltd agreed to buy Jaiprakash Associates’s two cement plants in Madhya Pradesh for Rs.5,400 crore.

The stock should now slowly move towards Rs.14-15, especially after Jaiprakash Power Ventures bagged the Amelia (North) mine in Madhya Pradesh quoting Rs.712 per tonne and the Second Unit of 660 MW of the Jaypee Nigrie Super Themal Power Project or JNSTPP starting commercial operation with effect from 00.00 hours of February 21, 2015. 

It therefore a screaming buy at Rs.11.10..............
