His name is Azam Khan : Opinion, News - India Today

His name is Azam Khan : Opinion, News - India Today


The slapping of AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal while campaigning in Delhi gets top billing in many papers. "Delhi campaign ends in drama, Kejriwal slapped by auto driver" reports the Hindustan Times in its front page lead. The Asian Age writes "AAP sees BJP hand in Kejriwal attacks".

In what seems to be an unrelenting pattern of controversial comments made on the campaign trail, the papers today highlight two more. The Times of India quotes BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as saying "Kerala is now a nursery of terror" as he targeted the Congress and the Left in the state. The Tribune highlights Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan's comments on the Kargil war as it reports "Azam's twist : Kargil war was won by Muslims".

The Pioneer shares some financial arithmetic about the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. In a special story, it quotes the Election Commission as saying that government spending on the conduct of the polls is set to cross the 5000 crore rupee mark.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi's refusal to provide a copy of her passport to a US Court in connection with a 1984 anti-sikh riots case is prominently noticed in the Hindu, the Times of India and the Tribune. They write that she has cited refusal by the Indian government on grounds of personal security as the reason for not giving the copy.  

In what will cheer many Indians, specially IT professionals, all the papers report that the spouses of H1 B visa holders who have technical skills may be allowed to work in the US.
