BJP gets punters' vote, Congress seen at under 100 seats - satta bazaar bets heavily on Modi win


Maoists killing 15 CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh is the lead in most papers - 'Two platoons of CRPF - state police team ambushed' is the Hindu headline. Mail Today calls it 'bloodbath in Sukma' 'Red alert ahead of polls?' asks the Hindustan Times.
Rahul comparing Modi with Hitler is splashed across front pages of many dailies - 'In Gujarat, Rahul attacks Modi - accuses state govt of stealing farmers' land, allotting them to rich industrialists' writes the Indian Express.
But the Economic Times writes that 'BJP gets punters' vote, Congress seen at under 100 seats - satta bazaar bets heavily on Modi win.'
Gul Panag likely to be the AAP candidate from Chandigarh figures in Hindustan Times and Times of India. 'Ticket for tainted debate rocks Congress' writes the Tribune, referring to Ashok Chawan, Pawan Bansal and Subodh Kant Sahay'.
Freaky weather? Yes, of course. Snow in March? Strange, but true. 'Summer gives Kashmir cold shoulder' writes the Pioneer, as it has a picture of a man walking on a white road, after heavy snowfall yesterday.
'Weather forecast updates strengthen El Nino fears' reports the Times of India, raising fears of a weak monsoon.
Planning a holiday? Book your tickets fast, as IndiGo and Spice Jet have slashed their fares yet again and there are massive discounts under the 'Super Holi sales'.
There's a ray of hope for the widows of Vrindavan finally. An article titled 'Vrindavan widows fashion a new life' reports of a US based Indian origin designer, who has asked them to handcraft outfits.
