Obama’s historic trip to Cuba: a brief guide to what it means and why it matters

Obama’s historic trip to Cuba: a brief guide to what it means and why it matters


    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address at the concluding session of the BJP's National Executive meet in Delhi dominates the front pages. The Times of India reports "Don't fall for opposition conspiracy, focus on vikas, PM tells BJP". With regard to the political resolution adopted at the meet, the Indian Express quotes the BJP as saying " Refusing to chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai is disrespect to the Constitution". The Hindu highlights Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu's praise for Mr Modi as it quotes him as saying "Modi is God's gift to India".
    Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's attack on the BJP in the backdrop of the revolt by some ruling congress party legislators in Uttarakhand is widely noticed. The Hindustan Times quotes Mr Gandhi as saying "Toppling governments by blatant use of money is BJP's new model". Meanwhile taking note of the political developments in the state, the Asian Age reports "9 rebel Congress MLAs get speaker notice" and the Pioneer writes "Uttarakhand Congress hides MLAs in hills to prevent poaching".
    In a special front page story on how Maoists recruit their cadres, the Hindustan Times reports "Maoists use lottery to pick child soldiers".
    The Indian Express draws attention to the busting of a smuggling racket involving exports of Beryl, an atomic mineral ore of Beryllium to China. The paper writes, "Atomic material smuggling racket busted, Rajasthan ATS arrests six".
    The Times of India, the Pioneer and the Hindustan Times inform us that the government is all set to introduce a new drug 'Bedaquiline' to its Tuberculosis control program to treat drug-resistant TB which cannot be treated by existing drugs.
    And finally, Khadi literally takes to the skies as the Pioneer reports that Air India will use this fabric for cabin crew uniforms for its VVIP flights that carry the Prime Minister on international tours.
