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.

Lucknow - Men claiming to be supporters of former UP power minister Ramveer Upadhyay Monday allegedly barged into Lokayukta Justice N.K. Mehrotra's office and threatened the staff after being denied some information and files asked by them.

Upadhyay is a close aide of former chief minister Mayawati.

According to the Lokayukta, who is probing certain allegations against Upadhyay and has been daggers drawn with the once-powerful minister, said some people, calling themselves his supporters, entered his office and sought to see some files pertaining to the investigation.

He added that when his private secretary A.K. Singhal refused to part with the information, they threatened to stone the office and create a ruckus.

The Lokayukta said he had communicated about the incident to senior police officers. Deputy Inspector General of Police Ashutosh Pandey said security had been beefed up at the Lokayukta office.

Justice Mehrotra had some time back had written to the principal secretary (Home) seeking a review of his personal security and that of his office as he was dealing with some cases of corruption against some high level politicians.

Mehrotra, through his various reports, was instrumental in the sacking of more than two dozen ministers of the Mayawati government. He was recently given a two-year extension by the Akhilesh Yadav government.
