Bloodbath in Chhattisgarh: Naxals kill 26 CRPF jawans, loot weapons


    The NITI Aayog meeting and MCD election dominate the front pages of almost all papers.
    "PM calls states Team India" is the Pioneer headline. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called upon Chief Ministers to speed up capital expenditure, and infrastructure creation to spur economic growth.
    The Indian Express leads with the headlines " Mehbooba asks CMs to reach out to Kashmiri students , PM backs appeal."
    The Times of India headlines reads "PM backs January -December Fiscal year".
    "MCD polls- half of Delhi did not care"  is The DNA headline saying that senior citizens outnumbered young voters. Also, the posh areas of the capital elicited lukewarm response.
    The Business Standard reports that UK has emerged as a popular destination this summer for Indian tourists as a weak pound has made travel 15 percent cheaper over last year.
    Now, passports can be applied for online, in Hindi also, India's cleanest river Narmada facing existential crisis, 300 whats-app groups used to mobilize stone pelters in Jammu & Kashmir, Tamil Nadu farmers suspending protest at Jantar Mantar after 40 days are some of the stories covered by newspapers.
    Blood donation is a great thing but, over 2.8 million units of blood & its components, a good 6 per cent of blood collected was discarded, over the last 5 years, exposing serious loopholes in the system, reports The Times of India.
    And finally, the Hindu introduces us to a collector Devajit Bandhyopadhyay from Kolkata who has, as a private collection- 500 pieces of memorabilia, 40 musical instruments, 20,000 books and manus and 24,000 records of Indian and Western music.
