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.

Supreme Court nod on river interlinking

[+] Text [-]

New Delhi - The Supreme Court Monday gave the green signal for implementing the ambitious project to interlink India's rivers, saying it was in national interest.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia also constituted a high-powered committee headed by the water resources minister to work out the roadmap for the project.

The court said that the committee will meet at least once in two months and its recommendations will be considered by the cabinet within 30 days of receipt.

Pronouncing the judgment, Justice Swatanter Kumar said: "The project is in the national interest and we find no reason why any state or the centre would oppose this," adding that it should be implemented as expeditiously as possible.

The project was concieved about five decades ago and received a boost in 2002 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee, as the prime minister, gave it a new thrust.
