Just another lame excuse of Congress. Isn't BJP having alliance with SAD in Punjab, with JD(U) in Bihar & still performing better than Congress run states? The fact is there is no capable leader in Maharashtra unit of Congress
(as rightly said by some, even the current CM has been imported from Delhi:D) or NCP to take the state forward. It is more like choosing better amongst the worst.:bab (45):
Coming to Congress again, Sonia Maino Nehru (also called as Sonia Gandhi) has significant stake in Indiabulls Realty alongwith steel tycoon LN Mittal, the Chairman of ArcelorMittal. Bhupinder Singh Hooda of Congress in Harayana is a pet of KP Singh of DLF. Ask anyone how state govt cleared so many sanctions in such a short time for DLF. It is no wonder why most of the new areas have been developed by DLF in Gurgaon.:bab (34):
In 1995 when BJP-SS came to power, the RE prices in Mumbai fell by 30-35% & when Congress-NCP returned in 1999, the RE prices again went upwards. Any guesses why? :bab (35):CommentQuote0Flag

Which one would you like?
Well, 1p/m will be there as those who introduced this:- Tata Docomo have also got 3G spectrum. Now note that cos paid high price for 3G spectrum not for only 3G but the bandwidth is now so big that they won't require any additional spectrum. Cos like Uninor, Videocon, Swan etc. will now be even in bigger mess as they won't be even able to sell their 2G spectrum to existing players like Vodafone, Airtel, Idea etc. as all have sufficient 3G spectrum to accommodate voice as well. They have just made dead investment & cos especially like Uninor will be the biggest hit.
*PS:- Mukesh Ambani lead RIL had interest in telecom (they have already bought pan-India license through backdoor channels for Wi-Max) & was considering buying out Videocon Tele as well as D2H. Seems some said no point in fighting with Anil everywhere:D.CommentQuote0Flag

Well, do you think Govt runs the country at first place?? Do you think if Parliament is bombed & all 545 MPs die, will you die next day? C'mon man, it is the corporations which run the countries & Govt is just a puppet. Seen cabinet ministers doing Jee Huzoor in front of corporate big shots . A MLA had touched a feet of infrastructure cos Chairman.
Btw, if junk MoS for Home like Bagwe can lift chappals of Rahul, they will even lick the sole of the fund-raisers:D.
Btw, politicos used to line-up like beggars in front of Maker Chambers 4 (MC4), South Mumbai for tickets.

- High property prices hit resale of old flats
See how the viscous cycle of high prices hit sellers well:-
Mumbai, November 13, 2010
The steep property rates in the new constructions seem to have played an adverse effect on the resale of flats in the city. The reason: Owners of these used flats, who usually upgrade themselves to new constructions, are finding it difficult to find new properties suiting their budgets owning to exorbitant rates quoted by the builders. This has forced many to defer sale of their existing properties.
Ram Prasad Padhi, CEO of Mumbai Propertys, a leading real estate brokerage firm, rues the absence of sellers. “We have a huge database of buyers but flat owners are postponing their sales in a big way,” said Padhi.
He added that recently a flat owner at IC Colony in Borivli had refunded a token money on the pretext that there was not a single property in the vicinity where he could shift which suited his budget.
The resale flats market occupies 50% of the sales in the realty sector. In normal course, flat owners tend to sell off the premises and shift to bigger ones in new constructions. However, the recent unprecedented hike in new constructions has dampened their mood.
“Flat owners are adopting a wait-and-watch policy as they expect these rates to come down,” said Harendra Pandya, vice-president, Estate Agents Association of India, an apex body of real estate agents.
Builders say they should not be blamed for the scenario. “The overheads have increased in the last two years and we price according to market conditions,” said Shailesh Sanghvi, director of Sanghvi Builders.
But experts say this disturbs the entire market. “Homebuyers are left in lurch while the government loses revenue,” said Pankaj Kapoor, CEO of Liasas Foras, a real estate research firm.

This is what happens if you believe in DP stuff of the builders. Another kick for those who bought based on DP bridge & DP road connecting PN to Baner. See the image below.
PMC fails to acquire land for approach to Baner-Pimple Nilakh bypass over Mula river
Despite being completed about four years ago, the Pimple Nilakh-Baner Bridge over the Mula river is yet to be opened to the public, because there is no connecting road at one end.
The project was undertaken jointly by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC). About Rs5.25 crore was spent to build the 160-metre-long, 20-metre-wide bridge.
"The construction of the overbridge was completed on September 20, 2007. But the bridge could not be opened to the public because the PMC failed to acquire the land at one end of the bridge," claimed PCMC officials.
According to officials the acquisition of the land was imperative for the construction of a road connecting the overbridge. Once inaugurated, the overbridge would link Pimple Nilakh, Kalewadi, Rahatni, Jagtap Dairy and Baner-Balewadi routes.
A demand by the residents to open the overbridge for public has been long-pending. The PCMC engineering department co-ordinator, Dilip Kudale, told DNA, "As it was a joint venture by both the municipal corporations, the PCMC had completed its work on time. It was the failure of the PMC, which has not followed the deadline for the project."
In a Right to Information (RTI) inquiry on the status of the overbridge by BJP activist Vishwas Gandhile in 2008, it was revealed that the PMC had failed to acquire the land for developing a road near the project.
Under the RTI Act, 2005, he was informed that the PMC had sent a proposal for land acquisition to the district collectorate office on June 8, 2006. "If the PMC still neglects the land acquisition for the road development, it would complicate matters. Encroachments have already started taking place near the project," PCMC officials claimed.
The Pimple Nilakh-Baner overbridge proposal was sanctioned during the tenure of former PCMC commissioner Anil Diggikar in 2003. Local activists made efforts to ensure that the overbridge was opened before the Commonwealth Youth Games in 2008, but in vain.
There are nearly 2,000 commuters from various parts of the city like Baner, Pashan, Pune and Aundh who come to the Pimpri-Chinchwad area for work every day. They could save a lot of time if the bridge was opened to traffic.CommentQuote0Flag
