New life for Nehru's daily National Herald ?

New Delhi : Speculation is rife in Congress circles that the party is keen to re-launch the National Herald, a newspaper founded 70 years ago by India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Perhaps it has something to do with his great grandson?

The newspaper, which published its last editorial April 1, 2008, had announced it has “temporarily suspended” operations.

But rumours started doing the rounds after renovation at the building, located at Bahadurshah Zafar Marg, known as Delhi’s Fleet Street where omany other newspapers are also based, picked up pace.

The building now wears a brand new look. There are whispers that perhaps Congress general secetary Rahul Gandhi is planning to revive the newspaper that his great grandfather started Sep 9, 1938.
