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.

Mukul Roy is a loyal soldier of TMC: Mamata

Firm on the removal of Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today asserted that it was time for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to act on her plea to replace Mr. Trivedi with another party nominee Mukul Roy.

“I have already said whatever I have had to say. Now the government has to decide. Mukul Roy will be our candidate for the Railway Minister,” Ms. Banerjee said during the filing of nominations for Rajya Sabha elections by Mr. Roy, the Union minister of State for Shipping, and three others.

She described Mr. Roy, who filed nomination for a second term in the Rajya Sabha from the State, as a ‘loyal soldier’ of the party.

“He has been a loyal soldier of the party. He has served Rajya Sabha for six years. We have re-nominated him. He is our party’s all-India general secretary,” she said.

Ms. Banerjee’s comment came shortly after Trinamool Congress Chief Whip in the Lok Sabha Kalyan Banerjee telephoned Mr. Trivedi in the morning and asked him to quit, but the Railway Minister insisted on a letter from the party chairperson.

Asked to comment on Mr. Trivedi’s stand and Kalyan Banerjee’s telephone call to him, Ms. Banerjee declined to comment saying “ask Kalyan Banerjee who is the party chief whip in Lok Sabha.”
