Rahul Gandhi promises free healthcare, slams BJP for playing `politics of blood`


Several papers cover Narendra Modi's Arunachal Pradesh election rally in Pasi ghat. He said, the present world does not accept an expansionist attitude and warned China against such an attitude.

The Sunday Times , quoting an AC Nielson opinion poll reports that the Narendra Modi led NDA could be within touching distance of power - by winning 236 of the 543 seats in the next Lok Sabha, with the BJP alone bagging 217 seats.

"Next government likely to bag a 10,000 crore rupee bonanza from 4G Spectrum sale" , headlines Hindustan Times. TRAI has recommended the auction of fourth generation spectrum that will give Internet users much higher speed on mobile devices.

There are several pictures in today's papers of RBI governor Raghuram Rajan and Finance Minister P. Chidambaram during the opening session of the two-day G-20 meeting of Finance Ministers and Central bank governors at Sydney in Australia. The Asian Age tells us that the top G-20 officials are meeting to work out ways to boost growth and create jobs.

Times of India informs us that for a country which till recently had a weak civil society movement, India is now witnessing a boom in the NGO sector, and could well be the land of opportunities for them.

The Asian Age writes - in a major step, the Health Ministry has formulated new guidelines on sexual violence and rape, in a bid to protect the dignity of the victim who will henceforth be called a "survivor". Among other points , the survivor can lodge a police complaint  on the basis of a Medical examination any time later.

And finally, The Sunday tribune covers the ongoing crisis in Ukraine , with protestors taking control of the country's capital yesterday. President Yanukovych, who abandoned his office- denounced what he described the opposition action as  "a coup". Parliament has set an early election for May the 25th.
