India Visa For This Man Seen As Payback For China Protecting Masood Azhar


    The High Court's verdict in Uttarakhand is the lead story in all papers today. "HC quashes central rule in Uttarakhand," headlines Hindustan Times; "Restores Rawat as Uttarakhand CM," highlights The Pioneer; "Shaken BJP, says 'not surprised'," reports The Hindu while The Statesman carries Harish Rawat's appeal "Modi govt. must now cooperate" quoting him as saying, "his govt. does not want to pursue a confrontationist path with 'the mighty, powerful and broad-chested' Centre."
    On the effect of the odd-even scheme in the capital on pollution, Hindustan Times reports, "No odd-even impact seen, pollution panel tells NGT." "Landfill fire ignites AAP-BJP fight" highlights the Hindu. "AAP government forms panel to probe odd-even 'sabotage' " says The Pioneer. The Times of India quotes environmental expert, Sunita Narayan, "Permanent odd-even not a solution. If you make it permanent, people start looking for ways to avoid it."
    The liquor baron Mallya continues to occupy front pages. The Financial Express reports "Mallya to Supreme Court: don't need to reveal assets." "Broke Mallya has Trump card in New York," says Mail Today of the elusive Rajya Sabha member's "three big-ticket apartments in the Iconic Trump Plaza." "ED moves MEA for Mallya's deportation," notes The Pioneer.
    "Hooda set to lose Cabinet Minister status," reports The Tribune adding, "The BJP government in Haryana has decided this following the former Congress Chief Minister's alleged 'role' in the Jat reservation stir."
    And finally, on a contrasting note, the US is set to celebrate Harriet Tubman, an African-American slave woman, for her role in helping hundreds of slaves escape chains using the Underground Railroad. She will stand with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as among the iconic faces on the US dollar."
