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.

Air India to clear dues by Saturday

Mumbai -  After Air India promised to clear their salaries, many of its contractual ground staff who bunked duty Thursday morning returned to work, official sources said.

Earlier, around a hundred workers remained away from work protesting non-payment of two months salaries.

AI officials said it had made arrangements to clear the salaries by Saturday.

The officials said two international flights from Mumbai to Cairo and Shanghai were delayed by around an hour each.

Thursday’s protest included around a hundred of crucial ground staff and personnel manning the airline’s counters at the airport during the morning shift who do not belong to any union.

The agitation came as a consortium of 19 banks approved a Rs.18,000-crore financial restructuring plan for cash-strapped airline, lifting the spectre of a strike threat by Air India pilots.
