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.

Russian military police to be formed in 2014

Moscow - Russia's military police force is already functional and formation of the new service will be completed in 2014, an official said.

Deputy chief of the military police Maj. Gen. Andrei Nechayev's remarks came in response to media reports that the Russian Armed Forces so far have no military police and that formation cannot begin until 2013 due to "legal inconsistencies".

"The military police have already been created and are functional within the scope of tasks as defined by our leaders," Nechayev said.

The defence ministry has until the end of 2014 to complete formation of the new service, he added.

Former defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov announced the creation of the military police in July 2011. The service's main function will be to fight rampant hazing and theft of military property.

Russia's Chief Military Prosecutor Sergei Fridinsky said in April that the agency will also be granted investigative functions.
