NEWSPAPERS’ SCAN – JAN 09

 

The Passage of landmark Bill to provide 10 % reservation in jobs and education for the general category “Poor” in Lok Sabha unanimously, is major news in most of the dailies today. “Lok Sabha passes 10% EWS quota Bill: to face Rajya Sabha test today”, is the top headlines of The Asian Age. The Pioneer adds that the HRD Ministry yesterday convened a meeting to work out modalities for implementing the 10 % reservation in higher educational institutions by increasing the number of seats available.

Another landmark though contentious Bill passed by the Lok Sabha yesterday, was the Citizenship Bill. The Asian Age reports that the Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslims from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, thereby providing succour to persecuted Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis from these neighboring countries. Home Minster Rajnath Singh said “They have no place to go to, except India.

“Supreme Court reinstates Alok Verma as CBI Director, but clips his wings” is the top headline in The Hindu. The Indian Express adds that the bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, made it clear that the issue of Alok Verma’s divestment was ‘still open’ and asked him not to take any major policy decision.
Mail Today reports that the Reserve Bank of India, yesterday, set up a high level committee under Infosys founder and Aadhaar architect – Nandan Nilekani – to recommend measures for strengthening the safety and security of digital payments in the country.

And to conclude – an excerpt from The Times of India. In a first, the skeletal remains of a young man and women have been excavated at the Harappan settlement of ‘Rakhigarhi’ in Haryana, about 150 kms from Delhi. There is evidence that both were buried simultaneously. An earlier and similar burial was considered by experts to be an instance of a widow’s sacrifice, following her husband’s death.
