Kejriwal in trouble after Hazare blow : Anna queries on funds, misuse of name


A letter written by social activist Anna Hazare to his erstwhile colleague and Aam Admi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal dominates the front pages. "Kejriwal in trouble after Hazare blow : Anna queries on funds, misuse of name"writes the Asian Age. The Hindustan Times highlights how a man claiming to be an Anna and BJP supporter threw black ink at Arvind Kejriwal at a press conference as it reports "Anna, Kejri drop letter bombs, ink flies in smear campaign".
The consultations held by the Group of Ministers or GOM with various stakeholders on the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh are widely reported. The Indian Express draws attention to the Attorney General's view in its headline "Split Andhra and its special status goes : AG to govt." The Statesman reports that the Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy as saying, bifurcation will be threat to the national security.
All the papers highlight the growing clamour from various quarters including UPA ministers and the Bihar Chief Minister for awarding the Bharat Ratna to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. "Nitish, Farooq throw weight behind Bharat Ratna for Vajpayee" writes the Pioneer. The Asian Age says even the HRD Minister Pallam Raju has endorsed this demand.
Acting on a PIL challenging former President Pratibha Patil's decision to commute the death sentence of 5  convicts into life sentences, the Supreme Court will now examine the issue, report the papers. "SC notice to Centre on 'casual' pardon by former President" writes the Pioneer. The Hindustan Times says, SC may review Prez pardon to 5 rapists on death row."
And finally many papers report of major initiative against child abuse imagery. The Times of India writes "Google, Microsoft block searches for child porn."
