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.

[+] Text [-]

New Delhi - The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment on Wednesday urged the Ministry of Civil Aviation to probe off-loading of a disabled person by Spice Jet in Kolkata.

Jeeja Ghosh, a victim of cerebral palsy, had complained to the Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment about being wrongfully off loaded from a Spice Jet flight No.SG-308 in Kolkata on  February 19.

The incident, prima facie, constitutes a serious violation of her rights as person with disability, as also a violation of the Carriage by Air of Persons with Disability and/or Persons with  Reduced Mobility Rules, 2008.
