PM chooses desi politics over role abroad


    The decision by the Supreme Court staying the Guwahati High Court verdict, declaring the CBI as illegal, dominates the headlines of most news dailies. "SC rescues CBI, stays HC verdict declaring it illegal" reports the Hindustan Times, while the Pioneer headlines "CBI lives another day".

    PM not to attend the CHOWGM meet in Sri Lanka, has also attracted the attention of major news dailies. "PM finally picks TN over Lanka" remarks the Asian Age while the Pioneer comments "PM chooses desi politics over role abroad".

    The Hindustan Times reports in a front page story that the CBI probing the allegedly staged killing of Sadiq Jamal Mehtar by the Gujarat police in 2003, has confirmed that a retired assistant director of the Intelligence Bureau who was then with its Maharashtra unit provided a fake input in the case.

    Many newspapers have also highlighted BSP Chief Mayawati's decision not to have any pre-poll alliances. "2014 LS polls to be a lone fight for BSP:Maya-will capitalize on "internal dissension" in BJP" reports the Pioneer.

    The Times of India in its lead story on the crisis of Indian higher education reports "40 percent of teachers temporary, quality of learning badly hit" and goes on to add that many of them are poorly paid and are on contract to teach for 6 to 8 months.

    The Indian Express, quoting the BSF chief, says India will build a raised embankment along a 179 kilometer stretch on the Border in Jammu sector to preempt infiltration or shelling.

    And finally, the Tribune reports that a special stamp with the portrait of the sporting icon Sachin Tendulkar will be released by the postal department on November the 14th - the day Sachin plays his 200th and also his last test match.
