Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars 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.

Manmohan not to rock the Sri Lankan boat

With Tamil Nadu MPs insisting that India make its stand clear on the U.S.-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka in UNHRC, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said efforts are on to achieve a “forward-looking” outcome which would avoid “deepening confrontation and mistrust.”

“We are engaged with all parties in an effort to achieve an outcome that is forward-looking and that ensures that rather than deepening confrontation and mistrust between concerned parties a way forward is found on issues related to accountability and reconciliation,” Dr. Singh told DMK chief M. Karunanidhi.

In a letter to the DMK leader, who demanded that India support the U.S. resolution against Colombo for alleged war crimes during voting, Dr. Singh said India’s objective, as always, remains the achievement of a future for the Tamil community in Sri Lanka marked by equality, dignity, justice and self-respect.

Noting that India had emphasised to Sri Lanka the importance of a genuine process of reconciliation to address grievances of Tamils, he said New Delhi welcomed the report of Sri Lankan Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Committee (LLRC).

India believed implementation of the LLRC recommendations would contribute to the process of reconciliation, he added.

“We have also emphasised the need for an independent and credible mechanism to investigate allegations of human rights violations in a time-bound manner, which has also been recommended by LLRC. Our focus on these issues with the Government of Sri Lanka will continue,” Dr. Singh said.
