PM comes clean on Coalgate


The PMO justifying coal block allocation to Hindalco is the lead in most newspapers. 'PM comes clean on Coalgate - clears the air ahead of Supreme Court hearing after Parikh wanted PM named conspirator'  is the Mail Today headline. While the Asian Age writes that 'Parikh allocated blocks at a loss to PSU's, the Hindustan Times says that the 'ex-coal secretary insists he did no wrong'.
Pakistan troops targeting 26 Indian posts with mortar shells, leaving 2 BSF jawans injured, is reported prominently by the Hindu and the Tribune.
The Asian Age and the Tribune have a picture of Dhoni in action at the match in Mohali. 'Dhoni's ton goes in vain' writes the Tribune, of the players unbeaten 139, as the Aussies won the match.
'Modi kicks off crucial UP leg of 2014 race' writes the Times of India, about his rally in Kanpur yesterday. The Asian Age and the Pioneer have a picture showing the crowds.
The Supreme Court asking the CBI to probe top corporates in the Nira Radia case finds front page coverage in dalies. 'Big biz houses to face Radia tapes probe heat' is the Times of India headline, adding that 8 deals listed by the supreme court are under the lens.
On the international front - 'Turmoil in Maldives as police block presidential revote' says the Statesman, about the chaos in the country.
Bad news for Delhi University students - 'No second chances as DU does away with re-evaluation' writes the Hindustan Times on its front page.
Have you heard of one biological kid from 2 moms, asks the Times of India. The paper writes about a fertility clinic in Boston which helps female same sex couples to become parents - by mixing one woman's eggs in a lab dish with donor sperm, then implanting this in the other woman. Strange, but true.
