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.

New Delhi -  Congress MPs from Telangana who were suspended from the Lok Sabha Tuesday staged a protest against the decision at the parliament complex here  Wednesday.

The MPs, who were suspended for four days for disrupting parliament’s Budget Session while demanding the formation of a Telangana state, sat with black strips of cloth across their  mouths and holding placards demanding that a new state be carved out of Andhra Pradesh.

Due to the disruptions by the MPs, the lower house of parliament Tuesday could not function during the second half of the day's sitting.

Later, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal decided to suspend MPs Ponnam Prabhakar, Madhu Yaskhi Goud, M. Jagannath, K.R.G. Reddy, G. Viveknanda, Balram Naik,  Sukender Reddy Gutha and S. Rajaiah.

However, even after the suspension, they continued to sit in the house.
