Punjab Assembly Election Battle 2012

Though, Punjab Assembly Election 2012 are six months away; however, election battle has clearly started in state with both main contenders of power Akali-BJP alliance and Congress starting pre-poll campaigns. In earlier article Punjab Assembly Election 2012, I tried to describe present political situation in Punjab. There are total of 117 assembly seats in Punjab and any party or alliance needs to win 59 seats to make next government in state. 

In last 2007 Punjab Assembly Election, Akali Dal-BJP alliance came to power by winning 67 seats out of total 117 seats (Akali Dal 48 and BJP 19). In same election, Congress won 44 seats while 5 seats were won by independent candidates whereas other opposition parties like CPM and BSP failed to win a single seat (To know more read Final Result Punjab Election-2007).

In 2012 election, we will again see main fight between Akali-BJP alliance and Congress. If we go by 2009 Loksabha Election Results then Congress looks in strong position because Congress won 8 Loksabha seats out of total 13 seats while SAD won 5 and BJP got just 1 seat). 2009 Loksabha Election Results of Punjab provide some glimpse that people of Punjab are not totally happy with present SAD-BJP government. Though, after 2009 Loksabha election Punjab has seen many positive changes.

In Punjab, it is history of alternate win of SAD or Congress; therefore, if we go with this trend then Congress has good chances this time. Overall, it is going to be a furious election battle in Punjab with both SAD-BJP alliance and Congress working hard to win it.

What is Stock Market? Let's Understand it

When I was young, I always used to ask myself that why some people remain so mad about Stock Market and what actually is a Stock Market? Why we suddenly see people making billions of dollars in months or losing billions of dollars in days? Therefore, through this article I am trying to make it simple for others to understand what basically is Stock Market and how it functions. The most basic work of any stock market is to facilitate trading in various company stocks and derivatives.

Stock Market provides an easy option in front of companies to borrow money from people and financial institutions by offering company stocks in return to them. Any Stock is listed on Stock Market at particular face value plus premium value which is determined by various agencies affiliated with Stock Market. For example if a stock has face value of Rs 10 and premium value of Rs 100 then this stock will be listed at Rs 110 on stock market and will be available to people at this price.

Face value is termed a…
