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.

JMM's rider for support: Soren as chief minister

Ranchi, Dec 23 (IANS) The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) - leading in 19 of 81 constituencies of the state assembly - was Wednesday jockeying for power and said it would support the political combine that would prop its head Shibu Soren as chief minister.

Jharkhand was Wednesday headed towards a hung assembly with indications that no political group or combine was likely to get a majority in the house.

"We will support only those who will favour Shibu Soren as the new chief minister," JMM general secretary Supriyo Bhattacharya told IANS.

In trends available for the 81 seats, for which counting was on, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was ahead in 24 seats while the Congress was leading in 23.

The JMM was thus emerging as a key player in the government formation in the state, which has been under the president's rule for almost a year now.
