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.

Syria rebel chief vows to fight till end against Assad’s ‘criminal’ regime

London - The chief of Syria’s main, West-backed rebel group has vowed to continue fighting until the end of what he termed as the ‘criminal regime’, on the second anniversary of the uprising against President Bashar Al-Assad.

Calling on Syrian soldiers to join the rebels in a fight for ‘freedom and democracy’, the head of the Supreme Military Council General Salim Idris said that his Free Syrian Army fighters will not give up on the fight against Assad’s regime, the Daily Star reports.

Admitting the might of the government, that has unlimited planes, tanks and missiles at its disposal, Idris however said that the group dreams of a Syria where every citizen can live in peace and liberty, adding that their will to fight is very strong and they will not stop until they have ended the ‘criminal’ regime.

Idris studied in Germany and taught electronics at a Syrian military college before defecting to the rebel side in July 2012, the report added.

The revolt against Assad's authoritarian rule began in March 2011 with protests in the southern city of Daraa, after troops arrested teenagers who scrawled anti-regime graffiti on a wall, and has since morphed into a civil war with an estimated 70,000 people killed, according to the UN.
