Now, even Pakistan is calling Donald Trump ‘ignorant’


    We have varying stories of 'helicopters' highlighted in the Press this morning. First, helicopters giving a helping hand in the raging Uttarakhand forest fires, and the ongoing CBI questioning in the Agusta Westland Helicopter Deal. The Asian Age carries a perfect picture of a helicopter lifting water from the Koteshwar dam to douse the Uttarakhand forest fires. Regarding the Agusta Westland Helicopter deal, The Pioneer quotes Defence Minister Manohar Parikar - "Will place facts in House to prove Augsta scam". 
    The Indian Express writes that a compliant, written anonymously, has put a question mark on the integrity of some of the cases of the Supreme Court - monitored investigation  by the CBI in the Coal Scam. The letter, listing 24 specific cases, states that 'huge amounts of money have exchanged hands and that corrupt CBI officers are contaminating some probes.

    The Hindu writes, Members of a local community in Bengaluru have launched a campaign to rejuvenate Kundalahalli Lake near Whitefield. Officials have deployed a time tested battle strategy to stop waste from entering the city lake by cutting a deep trench around it, to block all entry points for trucks wanting to dump waste near the lake.
    "Bankrupts may be barred from contesting elections", is the top headline in The Times of India.

    And finally, "Women employees to bear brunt of Ban on diesel cabs" - writes The Economic Times. The Supreme Court order banning non CNG cabs from Delhi roads has raised concern over the saftey of Women who work on late shifts and depend on company provided drop facilities as well as the lively hood of hundreds of small time taxi operators.
