ICC World T20: India maintain stronghold over Pakistan as chase-master Kohli stars at Eden Gardens

ICC World T20: India maintain stronghold over Pakistan as chase-master Kohli stars at Eden Gardens


    PDP - BJP  talks in Jammu and Kashmir to try and form a government in the state are prominently noticed on the front pages. "PDP-BJP talks hit a wall, alliance in J&K on brink of collapse" reports the Times of India.
    Another story that grabs front page attention is the reduction in the interest rates on a range of state run savings schemes including the National Savings Certificates and Kisan Vikas Patras. The Hindustan Times front page lead states "PPF interest rate cut to 8.1% from 8.7%".
    The unanimous resolution passed by the Punjab Assembly not allowing construction of  the Sutlej-Yamuna Link or SYL canal is prominently noticed in the press. The Indian Express writes "SYL : Punjab Assembly thumbs nose at Supreme Court". Meanwhile there seem to be conflicting reports about the water supply arrangements between Delhi and Haryana. While the Hindustan Times says "Haryana's water supply to NCR will continure for now" the Pioneer writes "Miffed with Kejriwal, Haryana cuts water to Delhi".
    The granting of interim bail to Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, two JNU students accused of sedition, is widely noticed in the press. The Asian Age reports "Celebrations in JNU as Umar, Anirban get bail". Meanwhile, the papers also highlight actor Anupam Kher's comments at a screening of his film in JNU.  The Hindu quotes him as saying "Kanhaiya is being praised like he won an Olympic medal".
    In a special front page story, the Indian Express says that the National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language which functions under the HRD ministry will take an undertaking from authors whose books it acquires. The paper states "Urdu writers asked to declare : My book not against the govt, nation".
    The Pioneer informs us of new Plastic Waste Management rules notified by the government. The paper writes that organisers of political rallies, religious gatherings, weddings and other such events will be responsible for removing plastic litter at the venue.
