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.

Upset over not being made CM, Rawat writes to Sonia

New Delhi -  Union minister Harish Rawat Tuesday wrote to Congress president Sonia Gandhi expressing his displeasure over not being made the Uttarakhand chief minister.

There were reports that he had resigned from the cabinet but Congress leaders denied to confirm this.

Rawat, who is minister of state for agriculture and parliamentary affairs, was unhappy over MP Vijay Bahuguna being picked up for the job.

"The decision of the Congress high command is acceptable to all the party workers and leaders and Vijay Bahuguna will take the oath of Uttarakhand chief minister," said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.

He denied any information on Rawat sending his resignation to the prime minister.

"I have also come to know that he has written to Sonia Gandhi-ji. There has been injustice done to Harish Rawat as in 2002 we fought the election under him but N.D. Tiwari was made the chief minister and we accepted it as he was a senior leader," said a party legislator from Uttarakhand.
