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.

Ban journalists from secretariat: Parrikar

Panaji -  Chief minister Manohar Parrikar Wednesday banned mediapersons from the secretariat for the duration of the cabinet meeting, because he does not "like being nagged".

"I do not like being nagged when I am going into the cabinet (meeting). It is a government decision. There is nothing wrong with it," Parrikar told reporters.

Goa Union of Journalists (GUJ) president Pandurang Gaonkar denounced the move.

"This is wrong. It is unfortunate because Parrikar projects himself as a transparent chief minister. What is there to hide in cabinet meetings?"
