Exports slide for ninth straight month in August


    The finalisation of the seat sharing formula for the Bihar elections by the BJP, finds place on the front pages of all newspapers. "NDA seat pact finalised" -- Asian Age; "BJP concedes to clinch Bihar deal" -- The Pioneer; "Manjhi aboard as NDA finalises Bihar formula" says the Hindustan Times. In a related story, the paper adds, "Lalu won't share stage with Rahul" highlighting the strained relationship between the two leaders.

    The alarming rise in the cases of Dengue also finds prominence in today's news. "Dengue scare grips Capital" reports the Statesman. "Dengue exposes poor health infrastructure  in Punjab, and Haryana" says the Tribune. "Delhi Government cancels leave for doctors, and Paramedic staff"  reports the Hindu and other papers.

    The Hindu Business Line, The Financial Express, The Economic Times and all other dailies have reported the World Bank study about Gujarat being ranked first in ease of doing business among all the Indian states while Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh follow.

    In an effort to chop off bureaucratic deadwood, the Centre instructs all departments to sack officials in the 50-55 age bracket "to raise the probity bar in governance" reports the  Hindustan Times. The non-bailable warrant against AAP's Somnath Bharti, also finds place in all newspapers. "Arrest imminent" reports the Times Of India.

    In response to the fatwa issued against him over the film Muhammad: Messenger of God, Music Composer Rahman says he composed the Music for the film "in Good faith and with no intention to cause offense" reports the Times of India and other Newspapers. 

    And finally, forewarned is forearmed! The Times of India reports the prediction of Britain's top climate and weather body, "2016 will be among the hottest years on record".
