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.

Gandhis resorting to theatrics: Sushma

[+] Text [-]

Lucknow - Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj Friday accused the Gandhi family of indulging in theatrics and 'filmi masala' to gain public support in the Uttar Pradesh elections.

Taking pot-shots at Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi, the BJP leader said they were resorting to "full blown drama on a well-made script" to confuse and influence the voters.

Recounting how Priyanka pinched her mother Sonia Gandhi's cheek at a public meeting and how an angry Rahul Gandhi tore off a paper carrying assurances of opposition parties at a Lucknow rally, the BJP leader told reporters that drama would not win the Congress any sympathy in the state.

She added that ground realities favoured the BJP and she was confident her party would win a majority and form a government in Uttar Pradesh.

The Congress and BJP are two of the main actors in Uttar Pradesh, apart from the Samajwadi Party and the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party.
