Ex-army chief Gen. V. K. Singh to contest 2014 polls from Rae Bareli, Sonia Gandhi's turf


The slide of the rupee is front page news in almost every paper. 'Rupee dive continues, touches 64.54' writes the Hindustan Times. The paper adds 'worse ahead- experts warn currency fast hurtling towards 70 to a dollar'.
In an item titled 'Boom in currency gloom' in the Business Standard, the paper writes 'medical tourism set to be in the pink of health' as it reports of positive momentum in this sector.
'New tax code targets super rich, owners of two homes' is an Indian Express headline. The Business Standard asks 'earning 10 crore? The paper says 'then get ready for 35 per cent income tax'. The cabinet is likely to pave the way for the 'super - rich' tax today.
The disappearance of coal files features prominently in the Hindustan Times and Mail Today. But there's hope still. 'CAG has all missing coalgate files' writes the Pioneer, adding that the CBI can take copies from them.
The Asian Age, the Tribune, the Hindustan Times and the Pioneer have all reported of Chinese troops coming 20 km in Arunachal and staying put for 5 days.
'Day after Dabholkar killing' Maharashtra approves ordinance on black magic' writes the Hindu. This seems ironic, as Dabholkar had championed this cause for years.
Asaram Bapu booked for raping a minor finds place in many dailies. The Pioneer calls it 'Godman's satanic act'.
In an Hindustan Times exclusive, the paper informs 'farmer sells onions at rupees 8, you buy at rupees 70'.
The Hindu has a picture of the US soldier and whistle blower Bradley Manning, who has been sentenced to 35 years in jail.
The Pioneer reports of ex-army chief Gen. V. K. Singh to contest 2014 polls from Rae Bareli, Sonia Gandhi's turf.
And finally, the Tribune writes of the Amarnath yatra ending, with a record 3.54 lakh pilgrims having visited the shrine.
