Seoul Peace Prize to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan saying that it has taken over the Jaish-e-Mohammad headquarters amid growing international pressure, are the some of the prominent stories covered by most of the dailies today.
“Crackdown or an eyewash? Under global pressure, Pakistan Punjab takes over Jaish Headquarters” headlines the Times of India. The paper adds ‘JeM chief out of complex, in military’s safekeeping’. The Indian Express writes “Day after UNSC statement, Pakistan moves against Jaish facilities, sort of.”
The Indian Express also highlights that the UNSC’s condemnation statement of the Pulwama terror attack was a major breakthrough for India’s diplomacy — “How first time UN talked of attack in J&K: Delhi worked phones in DC & Beijing.”
The Pioneer’s lead headline reads “Pakistan kept in Financial Action Task force grey terror list”.
Under the caption ‘Terror shadow on Cricket’, the Financial Express reports, “No decision on World Cup Match with Pakistan” scheduled for June 16 in England.
The Hindu reports “Olympic dream under threat as visa is denied to 2 Pakistan shooters”. The Times of India says “International Olympic Committee bars India from hosting sports events unless it ensures visas for all participants”.
The papers also carry photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi receiving the Seoul Peace Prize for 2018 for his contribution to international cooperation and fostering global economic growth. The Economic Times reports “Modi dedicated the 200,000 dollars prize money to the Namami Gange programme”.
