PM safeguards Law Minister #coalgate


The PM putting up a strong defence of Law Minister Ashwani Kumar over his alleged interference in the CBI Status Report into the Coal scam is seen prominently in the Press. "PM safeguards Law Minister", writes the Sunday Statesman. "I won't quit, nor will Ashwani : PM", headlines the Times of India.

The Prime Minister also termed the Chinese incursion into Eastern Ladakh as a 'localised' problem. The Hindu reports that the Indian Army has given various options and inputs on handling the issue to the government and to the China Study Group.

Hindustan Times reports - "A man who had invested 2 lakh rupees in the Sharadha Group has committed suicide - the third suicide in West Bengal since the Chit Fund scam broke. The Sunday Tribune writes - with the general election round the corner, the alleged links of Mamata Banerjee's Party with the Chit Fund operator, could damage her prospects.

The caption - "Election Commission checks Anger Mayawati" - is to be read in the Hindu. Election Commission Authorities checked her bag twice after her chopper landed at a Gulbarga helipad, finding rupees 1 lakh in her bag. She accused the commission of targeting her because she was a 'Dalit Woman'.

The Indian Express highlights the two 'play off games' of the T-20 tournament. The first qualifier on May 21st and the eliminator on May 22nd will be played in Delhi - as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha remains adamant on not allowing Sri Lankans to play in Chennai.

The Times of India writes that the Cadarache forest in the South of France has become the site of an ambitious attempt to harness the nuclear power of the Sun and Stars. 34 nations have joined forces in the biggest scientific collaboration on the planet - at the International Nuclear Fusion Project - which could produce unlimited supplies of cheap, clean, safe and sustainable electricity - from atomic fusion.

And finally, the Pioneer says that according to a recent study by the World Health Organisation - 'If you are turning 40, its time to take yet another shot of vaccination - to immunize yourself against a number of diseases, especially influenza and Pneumonia'.
