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.

ULFA firm on April 20 Assam shutdown

[+] Text [-]

Guwahati - The anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) Tuesday reiterated its call for a state-wide shutdown April 20 to protest against the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Assam.

In an emailed statement to media, the outfit's publicity secretary Joy Asom appealed to the people of Assam to play a conscious role so that "unwanted" situations can be avoided during the shutdown.

The prime minister is scheduled to inaugurate the platinum jubilee celebrations of the Assam Legislative Assembly at Dispur during his visit.

The ULFA faction also refuted the claims of Sonitpur district police, who had arrested four people, including a woman, a few days back on charges of their being ULFA linkmen, saying that they were not associated with the outfit in any way.
