Fox News boss Roger Ailes resigns amid sexual harassment charges

Fox News boss Roger Ailes resigns amid sexual harassment charges


    The Gujarat bandh called to protest the flogging of a Dalit family for skinning a dead cow dominates the front pages. "Dalit fury spills over to Gujarat streets, 9 more try to end lives" reports the Indian Express. Highlighting its resonance in Parliament, the Hindustan Times writes "Parliament in tumult over attack on Dalits in Gujarat : Sonia says social terror being unleashed on the disadvantaged, Rajnath says PM hurt by the incident".
    The expulsion of Dayashankar Singh, the vice-president of the BJP's Uttar Pradesh unit from the party for making derogatory comments on BSP leader Mayawati is prominently noticed in the press. "BJP leader abuses Maya, expelled" states the Asian Age. The Times of India quotes Mayawati as saying "Nation won't forgive BJP for its anti-Dalit stance".
    The Supreme Court's decision on the fate of the nine rebel Congress legislators in Uttarakhand who had been disqualified by the Speaker in March is highlighted in all the papers. The Hindu writes "SC wont stay disqualification of 9 Uttarakhand rebel MLAs : Bench refuses to discuss constitutionality of the Speaker's decision".
    The situation in the Kashmir valley continues to be keenly tracked by the press. The Tribune writes "no let up in tension in Kashmir valley : Casualty count 44 as Kupwara resident succumbs; Curfew continues".
    Pictures of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi dozing off in the Lok Sabha are splashed across the papers. The Indian Express caption reads " After Sonia seeks alertness, BJP, BSP insist Rahul caught napping".
    All the papers take note of the National Green Tribunal or NGT's order on diesel vehicles. The Pioneer states "Your 15-year old diesel cars sentenced to death : No NOC for such vehicles orders NGT; deregistration of oldest ones first".
    And finally, here's a rather unusual ghost story. The Hindustan Times reports "Madhya Pradesh minister lists demonic possession among reasons for farmer suicides."
