Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Chinese official jailed for 15 years for graft

Beijing -  A senior city official in China's Hunan province has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for taking bribes worth about 2 million yuan (about$318,000) and embezzling  87,900 yuan of public funds.

Liu Yuncai, former vice mayor of Xiangxiang city, sought bribes in cash, property and gadgets and falsified work-related expenses to get subsidies, the Shanghai Daily quoted a court in  Xiangtan city as saying.

Liu, 48, was fined 150,000 yuan along with seizure of his illegal assets, a local newspaper reported.

As in-charge of urban construction and utilities supply in the city until he was arrested last June, Liu had sought kickbacks from construction contractors and real estate developers for  helping them win bids, the report said.
