Why would it be correct? Persistent connections are a mere optimization; a new connection should work as well as the old one, as long as the credentials (usually provided by a cookie) are provided. There are security mechanisms that authorize on a per-connection basis, and they require new log in for each new connections (I believe NTLM is like this), but this should not be the case here. Even if it were the case, you could tell Wget to use the same connection, like this: wget http://URL1... http://URL2... In that case you shouldn't even have to bother with `--save-cookies' and `--load-cookies'. But maybe something else is going wrong for Suhas; I really don't know.
