Rahul Gandhi wants half of the All India Congress Committee to be women


    With rescue efforts in flood ravaged Uttarakhand almost coming to the last phase today, the focus is now shifting to rebuild shattered roads and infrastructure, writes The Sunday Pioneer - with a headline - "Uphill task of Rebuilding hill state commences."

    Along with a satellite photograph, writes that the formation of a huge lake in the Dhauladars, reportedly on account of recent flash floods and landslides has been confirmed - becoming a cause of concern for residents of six villages near Palampur.

    Reports that Bangladesh is likely to deport jailed ULFA founder general secretary Anup Chetia to India, after 16 years in jail, though the time schedule is not yet known.

    B S Yedyurappa - former BJP Chief Minister of Karnataka, who had earlier stormed out of the BJP, seems set for a home coming, reports The Sunday Times. The paper writes that an emissary of Yedyurappa met several BJP leaders in Delhi on Friday to convey his 'willingness' to return to the party.

    "Rahul wants half of the All India Congress Committee to be women" - says Mail Today. At a formal introductory meeting at the AICC office with the new team of officer bearers, he said the presence of women is less, but it will definitely be 50 % in the coming 2-3 years.

    'Shakeel' threatens to kill betrayer Salem is a headline in The Sunday Statesman. The paper writes - 'owning up to the recent misfired attempt on gangster Abu Salem's life, Karachi based don Chota Shakeel has virtually thrown a challenge to the Mumbai Police - of liquidating Salem for ditching Dawood Ibrahim and joining hands with Chota Rajan'.
