More villages along Godavari River put on high alert in Andhra Pradesh


Pictures of a rain battered Delhi with flooded roads and traffic snarls dominate the front pages of most papers. The irony in the Pioneer caption cant be missed as it writes, "Delhi turns Venice". The paper goes on to add "Hell on roads after 123 mm downpour".

The Hindustan Times reports that the CBI is planning to give a clean chit to Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav in the disproportionate assets case. Highlighting the opposition reaction, the Pioneer writes, "Opposition slams Congress for using CBI to gain support to Food Bill".

Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray's clarification about his remark that he did not see a credible face for the post of Prime Minister gets wide attention. The Times of India reports him as saying "Was targetting Congress, not Modi".

All the papers report that there has been swift justice for a Swiss woman who was gangraped in Madhya Pradesh in March this year. "Six get life in gangrape of Swiss woman" reports the Asian Age as it writes about the sentence handed out by a special court in the Datia district of the state.

An interesting question -Which is the linguistically richest state in India? The Hindu writes that according to a baseline survey of Indian languages by the Peoples Linguistic Survey of India, Arunachal Pradesh is the richest state with 90 languages out of a total of 780 different languages in the country.

The Times of India carries a story on an initiative by the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE to provide online learning resources to the tune of one lakh questions, 80 hours of live lectures and 4500 animations. The paper says that 11 million CBSE students will benefit from this.

And finally, you may not see too many of them on the roads these days, but our good old Ambassador car has been hailed as the worlds best taxi in BBC's popular television show Top Gear, reports the Hindustan Times.
