▶ No 'Mercy' For Aruna Shanbaug: Is India Ready For Euthanasia?
The Prime Minister striking a chord in Mongolia during his just-concluded visit, and, the flash point between Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Lt. Governor of Delhi, are the two major stories in the Press this morning.
The top headline in The Asian Age reads, "Prime Minister makes history in Mongolia, gives 1 billion US dollars : Defence, civil nuclear ties to be upgraded". And, The Hindu writes "Kejriwal ups ante against Lt. Governor Jung, vows to keep tabs on acting Chief Secretary Shakuntala Gamlin".
Hindustan Times writes "Rijiju enters fray, says AAP insulting people from the North East".
In an interview with PTI Finance Minister Arun Jailtley has said that making Taxation more reasonable and improving Ease of Doing Business will be among his top priorities. He will also strive to eliminate discretions and maintain speed of reforms, reports The Times of India.
The Pioneer writes that India-US Defense ties are expected to see a major fillip, with Washington ready to collaborate with New Delhi in joint designing and manufacture of frontline weapon systems, including fighter jet engines and aircraft carriers, giving a boost to the Make in India policy.
Papers are replete with photographs of a relaxed Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his stay in Mongolia. Dressed in traditional Mongolian dress, playing the musical instrument called Yochin, he is also seen wielding a traditional bow and arrow.
And finally, The Times of India writes that 'A dog is a man's best friend', is an old cliche', but the attachment could be much closer, as a dog may be as miserable and listless as its owner, and equally given in to depression and mood swings.
