    'All Titans on board for poll' is the banner headline of the Pioneer. The sub head says 'BJP, AAP, Congress heavy weight file nomination papers". The Asian Age on its front page carries photograph of beaming Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal after they filed their nomination papers from Krishna Nagar and Jamnagar, respectively.
    The top bottom fold of the Hindu carries a report about protests continuing at Delhi BJP office by angry party workers unhappy at the way tickets were distributed for the upcoming Delhi assembly polls. The lead headline in the Asian Age says "Rajnath tries to douse BJP row in Delhi".
    'Muslim population grows 24 percent but slower than last decade' is the lead story in the Times of India. The paper reports that their share is up from 13.4 percent to 14.2 percent of the total population.
    The banner headline of the Indian Express says 'India, US meet to break deadlock on Nuclear liability'. The sidebar quotes President Obama as saying 'Will hunt terrorists from Pakistan to Paris'.
    'Market swings force re-think on disinvestment' is the lead headline in the Hindu. The paper adds that strike threat by PSU staff is another reason for going slow.
    Another story in the Times of India noticed prominently is that the city of Bangaluru came in 5th in the list of cities globally that received the most venture capital in 2014, an indication of the growing vibrancy of its start-up eco-system.
    The Asian Age and the Hindu reports that the first full year budget of the Modi government will be presented on Feb 28th and the budget session will begin on Feb 23rd.
    A box item in the Hindu says that the CBI have arrested three persons, one a close aid of former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran in  connection with the telephone exchange case.
    And finally, 'Dog officers' have arrived in the city to secure turf for US President. The Times of India writes that one foot tall Belgian Malinois dogs are here to sanitize everything in a 100 meter vicinity of the President.
