IFP has taken a look at the front pages of newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The appeal by the first vice-president for the punishment of those who are to blame for the depletion of the foreign exchange reserve funds along with the demolition of the illegally-built top floor of a famous mall in the capital dominated the front pages of other newspapers.
