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.

S.M. Krishna is on a day-long visit to Moscow on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic with Russia. 

Over the last six and a half decades, our multi-dimensional relationship has evolved in different ways, but deep friendship and trust has always been the hallmark of our ties. Our unique bonds have been nurtured and reinforced with every succeeding generation, enjoying a strong positive consensus across the political and social spectrum in both countries," said Krishna.

S.M. Krishna referred to Soviet assistance to India's industrialization and security endeavours, which grew into a strong partnership in joint development and design in strategic sectors.  

Asserting that "India-Russia 'special & privileged' strategic partnership is today a model of depth and understanding for any two nation states', he said: " As emerging and responsible stakeholders in an ever-changing international system, our close relations serve as an anchor and as pivot of durable peace, a just global order and of multilateral stability.
