Dimapur lynching: Nagaland CM blames social media, alleged rapist's brother cries foul | Zee News


In the absence of newspapers this morning because of the Holi holiday yesterday, we'll look at the stories that are prominently covered in the online editions.

The Economic Times reports that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Maldives has been cancelled in view of the political unrest prevailing there with allegations of government high handedness against the Opposition. Maldives was to have been his last stop in his four nation tour of Seychelles, Mauritius and Sri Lanka starting March 10.

The Times of India highlights an interview given by Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe to Thanti TV, a Tamil news channel, in which the paper reports him as saying "Indian fishermen will be shot if they cross border".

The Hindustan Times carries a report on the meeting BJP President Amit Shah had with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. The paper reports that the RSS is unhappy with the contentious land acquisition bill and has told Shah that the government should try to overcome its 'pro-corporate' image and ensure the interests of farmers.

A order of the National Green Tribunal  or NGT asking the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, CIDCO and ONGC to pay 95 crore rupees as compensation to 1630 fishermen affected by the Port Trusts's project of creating an additional berth in Navi Mumbai is highlighted in the Indian Express.

The Deccan Herald writes that the internal problems of the Aam Admi Party are far from over. It says that some angry volunteers of the party have now started a social media campaign for bringing back Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav into the party's political affairs committee. The paper reports that an online petition is in circulation seeking proof of charges against them.

And finally, India's win over the West Indies in the World Cup cricket  which assures it of a quarter final berth is widely reported. The Hindu gives credit to paceman Mohammed Shami as it writes "Shami paves India's path to the quarters".
