Visakhapatnam ODI abandoned due to cyclone Hudhud
The advance of cyclone Hudhud, fresh ceasefire violations by Pakistan and campaigning for the upcoming assembly elections are some of the major stories noticed in newspapers today.
"Hudhud set for 195 kilometers per hour landing, thousands shifted" is the headline in the Hindustan Times. The Asian Age reports "PM chairs meeting to review readiness".
Going back to the catastrophic floods in Jammu and Kashmir, the Hindu reports "As floods struck, Omar government went missing, says Supreme Court panel", detailing the failure of the state government to evacuate people, and leaving the victims to fend for themselves.
"Pak guns boom again in Jammu" writes the Tribune. The Asian Age comments "Silence lasts only 40 hours". The paper also reports "Pak had deadly Dussehra plan" to kill a large number of Indian civilians living in villages along the international border on Dussehra day.
"Modi fears Hung House in Haryana" is the lead in the Tribune, noting, PM Modi, not taking pre-poll surveys lightly, says decisive verdict will help state, and also backs Jind khaps. The Asian Age states "Modi, Sonia pull no punches on poll eve".
And finally, "Border barriers broken on Skype". Under that headline, the Sunday Times comments, two groups of students in Bangalore and Islamabad, talking fashion, film and politics over Skype calls, might knock down the cultural and political barriers that divide them.
