Delhi's grand scheme to keep beggars off streets


Haryana Minister Kanda's resignation is prominently covered by most newspapers of the day. Booked for former staffer's 'suicide', Haryana Minister Kanda resigns', reports The Indian Express. Hindustan Times's headline reads 'Ex-airhostess kills self, Hooda minister quits'.

The incident of firing inside a Gurdwara in the US also dominates the headlines today. 'Six killed in Wisconsin Gurdwara shooting. Shooter also presumed dead in what appears to be a hate crime', reports The Hindu. The Times of India says 'Kids taken hostage after US Gurdwara shoot out'.

Hindustan Times, The Times of India, The Asian Age, and The Statesman highlight Mr. L.K. Advani's prediction on the post-2014 election scenario. 'Post-2014 polls, non-Congress, non-BJP PM likely: Advani' reads a headline in The Times of India. The Statesman says, 'Advani for next PM from allies', with the Congress and SP saying, 'he has conceded defeat even before the race has begun'.

Five-time world champ, Mary Kom being just a win away from an assured bronze has been covered by almost all papers. Hindustan Times writes, 'Mary packs a Punch on Debut Day'. The Pioneer says, 'Mary Kom shows Pole the ropes'.

The Financial Express reports, 'At least 3 to bid for 2G spectrum: TRAI '. The paper adds that TRAI chairman dismisses the view of incumbent operators that the high reserve price would increase costs and that it will have to be passed on to customers.

Hindustan Times carries a story on Government taking a u-turn on a 16-month-old recommendation by a Group of Ministers to review cases pending for over ten years, which the CBI considered a drain on its resources.

And finally, the Delhi Government proposes a stipend of 30 rupees daily to beggars who are willing to quit begging and have opted for skill training. The Pioneer reports it under the headline, 'Delhi's grand scheme to keep beggars off streets'.
