Draft bill on Telangana to be tabled during winter session of parliament

The horrific tragedy in the wake of super typhoon Haiyan has found coverage on the front pages of most newspapers. "10,000 dead, Philippines braces for colossal crisis", reads a Hindustan Times headline. "Worst typhoon ever kills 10,000" under that caption, The Times of India reports that Haiyan, potentially the world's worst typhoon in recorded history, raised 70 to 80% structures in its path. As Rescue workers struggled to reach ravaged villages along the coast, survivors foraged for food or searched for the lost loved ones, adds the paper.

Under the headline, "Communal heat turns UP's sugar bowl sour", The Pioneer writes that in Muzaffarnagar, sugarcane crops are lying in fields as owners of the mills who are afraid of a communal flare-up are yet to resume their operations.
In an initiative called the "Systematic Voters Education for Electoral Participation" at 11.11 AM on November 11, 11 lakh voters from the northwest district in the national capital will be asked to take a pledge to cast their votes, reports the Indian Express.
Hindustan Times reports that a senior leader of Aam Aadmi Party, Rakesh Agarwal, has called his party chief Arvind Kejriwal authoritarian and, in an open letter to him, accused him of building a personality cult and relentlessly moving towards snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
The Tribune reports that with the onset of cold spell, Leh town in the remote Ladakh region was the coldest place in the Kashmir division as the minimum temperature there fell to minus 9 degrees Celsius yesterday.
And finally, the Mumbai Cricket Association is juggling calls from across the globe - from Mumbai's Dabbawala Foundation to the Australian High Commission, and top corporates to NGOs - all seeking a chance to be at Wankhede Stadium to watch Sachin Tendulkar play his 200th and final test starting Thursday, writes The Indian Express.
