PM Modi hints at 'surgical strikes' to unearth black money

PM Modi hints at 'surgical strikes' to unearth black money


Supreme Court's order on BCCI has featured prominently on the cover pages of most dailies. "SC chokes BCCI’s fund flow: Board thrown open to auditor scrutiny, state units told to comply with Lodha reforms", says Hindustan Times. "Independent audit, BCCI funds frozen", says the Tribune while the Pioneer reports, "SC strips BCCI of fund power to force States to fall in line".
The possible threat of bird flu outbreak has been widely covered too. While a caption in the Times of India says, "Delhiites face no threat from new bird flu strain as of now, says Rai", DNA reports under the headline, "Bird flu: Delhi Government mulls culling affected species", that the Supreme Court has criticised Delhi Government for its failure to handle the bird flu crisis, accusing the AAP government of not being proactive.
In a major relief to patients, the Supreme Court has upheld the Centre's power to specify prices of essential medicines to curb profiteering by pharma companies. The Times of India writes that the order brings some 350 bulk drugs and more than 2,000 formulations under the price control regime.
The Asian Age reports that the Centre has unveiled "UDAN, Ude Desh Ka Aam Naagrik" - a plan to boost air travel, connecting small town with cities by capping the fare for one-hour flights which is about 500 kilometres, at Rs. 2,500/- for half of the seats in each flight.
The Financial Express says the Supreme Court has asked real estate company Parsvnath developers to hand over possession of a flat in its  Gurgaon project to Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore within two days adding that Rathore should not pay any more amount to the developer.
Haggling with porters and taxi drivers at railway stations will be passé from next April. As will the boring task of standing in long queues for platform or train tickets.
