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.

Chandigarh/New Delhi - An earthquake of 4.9 magnitude shook the Indian capital and its adjoining areas in the National Capital Region (NCR) Monday afternoon. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

The epicentre was near Bahadurgarh town near the Haryana-Delhi border region, just 35 km from New Delhi, the Indian Meteorological Department said.

Residents and office-goers in many areas in Delhi as well as Gurgaon and Noida felt the temblor.

Sources in Rohtak said the boundary wall of a school in Mayna village of Rohtak district collapsed. District authorities, however, could not confirm the incident.

Some people working and living in high-rise buildings in Gurgaon, which has the offices of several MNCs and leading Indian companies located there, were asked to vacate the buildings as the tremors were felt for over 10 seconds.
