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.

Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee slams UPA's economic policies

Kolkata - Former West Bengal Chief Minister and CPI (M) politburo member Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has slammed the economic policies of the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre.

"People are having sleepless nights. Retail market has become a mess. The government is disinvesting PSUs (public sector undertakings), ... this attitude of the Congress Party and its allies is anti-people. So, this can never help the Congress Party return to power," Bhattacharjee told media here.
The Central Government had mooted foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail sector to which most opposition parties had raised an objection, saying it would deprive local vendors of their livelihood.

In recent months, the Central Government has been criticized for its economic policies and for its inability of curb inflation.
