Thousands spoil durbar debut


Most papers have a picture of Arvind Kejriwal's Janta Durbar held yesterday. 'Chaos forces Kejriwal to abandon janta durbar in 15 minutes' is the Mail Today headline. 'Thousands spoil durbar debut' says the Sunday Express, as it shows the Chief Minister telling the public from the roof of the Secretariat building that he has chosen to leave rather than order a lathi-charge.
"AAP seeks more security in Amethi'' writes the Hindu, for the public meeting which is scheduled for today. 'Posters show up accusing Kejriwal of being anti national' adds the paper.
"Congress Rahul dilemma deepens' is the Pioneer headline. The paper goes on to say that the 17th January AICC meet may not name him as the Prime Minister candidate to avoid humiliation to Manmohan Singh.
Embarrassment for the Congress ? The Times of India, Mail Today, Pioneer and the Sunday Express report of Home Minister Shinde saying that he'll be happy to see Pawar as PM. Though within hours, he retracted his statement.
"Judiciary stares at morality crisis" writes the Mail Today, of a law intern accusing Justice Swatanter Kumar of sexual harassment.
"CBI to quiz Tyagis" writes the Asian Age of the kickbacks received by the former Air Force chief.
"Its snowing beauty in the hills" is the caption of a picture showing a white Mussoorie, in Mail Today. The Asian Age has a picture of Kufri after fresh snowfall.
"Older wiser mums changing family portrait - women now opt for late marriage, belated babies" is the Times of India lead story, based on a survey.
In a Hindustan Times special, the paper writes "this Monday, polio in India will go on a lifelong holiday", as our country will officially be declared polio free, by the WHO.
And finally, what is truly touching is a story in Mail Today of Raghu, whose legs are affected by polio, serving the poor and old in Ahmedabad.
