The political feud over the alleged snooping on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi dominates the front pages today. Highlighting the appearance of documents which suggest that Congress President Sonia Gandhi had participated in the same kind of security audit, the Times of India writes "Govt shows Sonia's form to deny snooping". The Indian Express reports the Congress as saying " Neither Sonia nor Rahul ever filled such form".

Public anger directed at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee as she was returning after meeting the Nun who was gangraped in Nadia district , is prominently noticed in the press. "Mamta heckled, convoy blocked" reports the Hindu. The Times of India writes "Mamta loses cool as Nadia locals demand CBI probe".

Most papers take note of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's return to the Capital after undergoing naturopathy treatment in Bengaluru. Drawing attention to a text sent to Mr Kejriwal by Prashant Bhushan who was recently removed form the Political Affairs Committee of the party, the Mail Today reports "Estranged AAP collegaue sends patch-up text as CM returns after losing high sugar and cough".

The Supreme Court's direction to the Centre and States to ensure that no one was denied welfare benefits for want of Aadhar, the 16 digit unique identity number is widely reported. "Keep Aadhar out of subsidy plans, Supreme Court tells centre" writes the Hindustan Times.

The meeting between some top Bollywood film-makers  and the Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting is keenly tracked in the press.  "Bollywood biggies want censor chief sacked" reports the Times of India.

And finally, in a front page story, the Indian Express reports that Pakistan cricketer Sarfaraz Ahmed's century in the ongoing World Cup Cricket tournament was celebrated by Mehboob Hasan, a senior clerk at Etawah's Agricultural Engineering College in UP. After all such a performance would bring joy to any maternal uncle, wouldn't it.
