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.

Abdullah keeps education portfolio with himself after minister Peerzada resigns

Jammu - Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has decided to keep the education ministry portfolio with himself following the resignation of state education minister Peerzada Sayeed over accusations that he used state education department officials to help his foster son to pass the Class 10th board examinations.

The Crime Branch of the Jammu and Kashmir Police has said in its report that there is prima facie evidence to show the involvement of officials of both the Board and Education department in helping Peerzada's foster son to pass his examinations.

The report points out that Sayeed's son was helped in more than two subjects in the 2009 class 10th board exams. A senior education officer even wrote his Urdu and Maths papers.

It has also been revealed that the Education Board even facilitated his migration from one school to another so that a favourable centre could be assigned to him.
