Star powers go green: Tollywood celebrities support Haritha Haram initiative

Star powers go green: Tollywood celebrities support Haritha Haram initiative


Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Tanzania as part of his four nation African tour is widely covered in the press. The Indian Express carries a photograph of Mr Modi playing drums with Tanzanian President John Magufuli as it reports "India, Tanzania to step up energy, food cooperation".

Pictures of masked protesters throwing stones at the police in Srinagar are splashed across the front pages of many papers as all the dailies highlight the continuing violence in Kashmir after the death of Hizbul Mujahidden commander Burhan Wani. The Hindustan Times reports "Kashmir burns in Wani's wake : mob kills cop by pushing vehicle into river".

The Hindustan Times carries a story on the CBI's investigation into the mysterious deaths linked to the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh. The paper states "CBI finds no foul play in 12 Vyapam-related deaths, wraps up probe ; Agency says deaths linked to health issues".

In a move that would be of great help to Indian women married to Non Resident Indians, the Tribune reports "Soon help for wives deserted by NRIs ; Government mulls standard operating procedures".

The Economic Times highlights a move by the government to increase public participation in the Prime minister's Mann Ki Baat programme. The paper writes "Mann Ki Baat kiosks to be set up in 8 cities this month for wider feedback".

And finally...news of 'sporting' cooperation between India and Kenya.... the Pioneer writes that Kenya and India will sign an agreement to enable Indian long and middle distance runners to train with world class Kenyan athletes.
