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.

Courts rejects BJP legislator's plea in Dikshit case

New Delhi -  A Delhi court Thursday did not accept the intervening application filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly in a case against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila  Dikshit for alleged violation of the election code of conduct in 2008.

Metropolitan Magistrate Vijeta Singh rejected Jolly's application saying that it has failed to satisfy the court.

The court would April 28 hear arguments on a police plea seeking withdrawal of the case against Dikshit.

Jolly, who contested against Dikshit from the Gole Market constituency in the 2008 assembly elections, opposed the withdrawal of the case against her.

The court was hearing a complaint by Samajwadi Party candidate Om Prakash alleging that Dikshit violated the election code by using loudspeakers without permission during the poll  campaign in November 2008.

On Feb 6, police moved an application for withdrawing the case and said that no loudspeakers or accessories were seized during investigations.
