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.

BJP to move privilege notice against Azad

New Delhi - The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Monday said it would move a privilege notice against Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad for giving "wrong facts" about his ministry on several occasions over the past three years.

BJP Member of Parliament Sanjay Jaiswal said he has prepared a list of 14 instances where the minister has given wrong information.

"We will bring a privilege motion against Azad," he said.

He also opposed the government's proposal to dissolve the Medical Council of India (MCI) and constitute an overarching body, the National Council for Human Resource in Health (NCHRH) in its place.

"The government is trying to dissolve all statutory bodies so that it can have everything under its control," Jaiswal said.

Responding to this, the Congress said that the BJP was free to use its rights and it will respond appropriately when a notice is submitted.

"If at all, the BJP chooses to exercise its prerogative to a particular parliamentary procedure, it is their choice. We will respond accordingly," Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said.
