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.

The militants were planning to strike in crowded areas, the spokesman of the National Directorate of Security, Nazari said Saturday.

"If this amount of explosives had been used, it could have caused large-scale bloodshed," The News quoted Nazari as saying.
