    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address at the BJP's Parivartan Rally after its two day National Executive meet in Allahabad is prominently noticed on the front pages. "Modi targets corruption, dynasty in UP poll pitch" reports the Hindustan Times.
    The media keenly tracks the BJP allegation that many Hindu families had migrated from Kairana in Western Uttar Pradesh due to threats and extortion by criminal elements belonging to a particular community. The Indian Express states "BJP list of 'Hindus'  forced out includes those who died, migrated for better job". The Hindu claims "persons named in BJP Parliamentarian Hukum Singh's exodus list still living in Kairana, UP".
    The Bombay High Court order in the 'Udta Punjab' film censorship case is highlighted in all the papers. "HC cuts censor board to size, clears 'Udta Punjab' with single snip" states the Times of India. The Pioneer reports the court order as saying "CBFC empowered to certify films not to censor them".
    Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's speech at a dharna against drugs in Jallandhar in Punjab are prominently noticed in the press. The Indian Express quotes him as saying "Drugs the only business to flourish under Akalis".
    The press reports that there is fresh India -China border trouble. The Tribune writes "Chinese troops at Tawang disputed section again". The Asian Age states "China flexes muscle with new Arunachal incursion".
    Under the caption "Indian rains focus of global study", the Hindustan Times reports that a British research team will study the Indian monsoon in an 8 million pound project aimed at more accurate prediction of the monsoon.
    And of a very heartening and novel development in Kashmir. "Muslims play host to Pandit guests in Valley initiative" writes the Hindustan Times. The paper says a group of Kashmiri Pandit families have come to the Valley to live as guests among Muslim families.
