Newspapers Scan – April 13


The Supreme Court’s interim order on the Electoral Bond Scheme is the front page lead in most of the dailies today. The Tribune writes “Electoral bond to stay : SC asks parties to list donors in sealed cover to EC”. The Indian Express quotes the apex court as saying “Issues need in-depth hearing”.

Taking note of a letter purported to have been written by some armed forces veterans to the President, the Indian Express reports “Military veterans write to President : Stop using army for political purposes; Two former service chiefs later deny giving consent to the letter”.

In the backdrop of the Election Commission’s stay on the screening of the biopic PM Narendra Modi, the Hindu notes “Supreme Court to hear plea against stay on Modi biopic”.

The controversy over Union Minister Maneka Gandhi’s campaign speech in Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh is prominently noticed in the press. The Times of India reports “Vote for me or don’t seek my help, Maneka tells Muslims”.

A day after the BJP admitted that the NaMo app of which Namo TV is a part the party has got directions from the Delhi Chief Electoral Officer informs the Indian Express. The paper writes “Delhi poll officer to BJP : Take down non-certified content from Namo TV”.

All the papers take note of a top foreign honour for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Asian Age writes “Modi gets Russia’s top honour for promoting bilateral relations”.

Highlighting the latest administrative move by the government, the Times of India reports “9 professionals selected as joint secretaries in biggest lateral induction into government service; will join their departments on contract basis”.

Some food for thought….The Hindustan Times has a special story captioned “Eateries cash in on poll fever”. It writes that some eateries in Delhi are offering dishes named after political parties and political leaders. So you could have Aam Admi Pasta or you could choose to eat Modi Magic Paneer rolls.
