A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam's Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. Flight MH370, operating a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, last had contact with air traffic controllers 120 nautical miles off the east coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu, Malaysia Airlines chief executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said in a statement read to a news conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Narendra Modi, who leads opinion polls ahead of next month's general election, faces pressure from anti-graft Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) attacking his economic model on his home turf, the thriving state of Gujarat. The pro-business leader has presided over rapid economic growth during more than 12 years as the chief minister of Gujarat, and slashed red tape to attract companies such as Ford , Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors . Now, Modi promises to replicate his state's development model nationwide if he becomes prime minister. But Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, on Friday said small businesses in the state were being shuttered, public schools and health services were in poor shape and claims of regular supplies of electricity were not true.

A quick run through the 36-page reply by the Indian cricket board to the 171-page report of the Supreme Court appointed Justice Mudgal Committee gives a clear insight into the mindset of cricket administrators and their brazen defiance to come clean on serious issues haunting the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Mudgal Committee, which made its report public last month, left cricket enthusiasts in little doubt about the role and activities of Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of board president Narayanaswamy Srinivasan, in running the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise. In the case of the other part-owner under the scanner, Raj Kundra of Rajasthan Royals, there was some element of doubt and the retired chief justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court wanted his case to be further probed.
Next month's general elections may prove to be the most significant ever because they can determine the fate of the Congress' first family. That was the reason the Congress survived the crushing blows it received in 1977 to return to power in 1980 by raising its tally of Lok Sabha seats from 153 to 353. Four years later, its tally went up to 415 under another popular leader, Rajiv Gandhi. Neither Sonia Gandhi nor Rahul Gandhi have the appeal and commanding personality of Indira Gandhi, or the charm and modern outlook of Rajiv Gandhi till he was tarred by the Bofors howitzer scandal.
