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.

Rahul did not violate poll code, says Congress

New Delhi -  The Congress Monday denied that party general secretary Rahul Gandhi violated the Election Commission's model code of conduct during his campaign programme in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur city.

“There was neither a procession, nor a rally,” Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.

“It was only a 'jan sampark (public contact) ' programme and there was absolutely neither the intention, or actual violation of any code of conduct or any other rule,” he said.

Gandhi's road show ran into trouble with Kanpur district authorities, who said the road show breached the permitted roadmap approved for it.
