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.

Srinagar -  Scores of government employees in Jammu and Kashmir staged a protest in Srinagar on Tuesday, against the alleged non-fulfillment of state government’s promise of extending the retirement age by two years and making all temporary employees permanent.

The protestors strongly condemned the government for playing dual role and threatened to intensify their agitation if their demands were not met.

“This protest is an expression of disillusionment of five lakh government employees with the (state) government. The state had signed a time-bound agreement with the joint consultative committee that it would increase the retirement age by two years and temporary employees in the state would be made permanent,” said Abdul Qayoom Wani, chairman of the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) of employees.

The JCC comprised of various unions of the state employees.
