13 burnt alive in a major East Delhi fire


The dreaded fog season has arrived, writes the Hindustan Times. The
capital and its neighbouring areas were surrounded in dense fog on
Sunday morning throwing air, rail and road traffic out of gear.
Mercury dips below 15 degree Celsius, fog delays trains says the Asian
Age. Season's first fog brings along accidents and delays is the Times
of India headline.

13 burnt alive in a major East Delhi fire. Photographs of the charred
remains at the Community Centre in Nand Nagari are splashed across
most newspapers.

The Pioneer on its front page has a photographs of L.K. Advani
speaking at the end of his 40 day long Jan Chetna Yatra at the Ram
Lila Maidan in Delhi. NDA to raise pressure on the UPA writes the
Asian Age. Senior BJP leader L. K. Advani announced on the final day
of his yatra that all NDA MPs would declare their assets in the Lok
Sabha next week. "Advani asks NDA MPs to come clean on black money" is
the Tribune headline.

The Financial dailies focus on Corporate profits being badly bruised.
The Financial Express, Business Standard and Economics Times write
about heavy debt loans taken by Indian companies in the past to build
mobile networks, power plants and airports coming back to haunt them
with the sharp depreciation of the rupee.

Lokpal to be free to prosecute says the Times of India. According to
the paper, prior sanction for prosecution of public servants, like
bureaucrats and MPs will not be required if the Lokpal is convinced
about the gravity of charges. The prospects of this provision becoming
part of the Lokpal are bright.

And finally, visitors at the India International Trade Fair in Pragati
Maidan crossed the 1 lakh cap on Sunday putting the organisers in a
tizzy. The entry gates had to be closed and metro station tickets were
sold out, writes the Hindustan Times. The Hindu adds that large crowds
throng the trade fair and many had to be turned away. Most papers have
photographs of the record crowds at the trade fair.
