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.

Antony terms reports on shortage of tanks ammunition as 'rumours'

New Delhi - Defence Minister A K Antony on Tuesday D said that reports of the Army being short of tank ammunition are just 'rumours'.

"These are all rumours. I can assure you that India is in a much more strong position as compared to the past," Antony told reporters here.

"There will always be some shortcomings and that is also in the process. We can't expect 100 per cent requirements to be fulfilled and also that entire force is not on the front. They are all spread over," he added.

Antony's statement is seen as a response to Army Chief General V K Singh's letter to the Prime Minister in March that armoured regiments were facing a critical shortage of ammunition.
