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.

In Bhopal, Congress leaders and workers moved around in groups to ensure that their protest was a success. Few passenger vehicles were seen in the city.

In Indore, Congress workers burnt an effigy of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Gwalior too saw shops shut and private schools declaring a holiday.

In Burhanpur district, Congress workers held prayer ceremonies in front of Narendra Kumar's photograph.

The issue was raised in the Madhya Pradesh assembly too, leading to adjournment of the house.

Kumar, a 2009 batch IPS officer was brutally killed in Morena on the day of Holi, March 8, when he was trying to stop a tractor loaded with illegally-mined stones.
