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.

Vrindavan -  Pilgrims from Delhi will now be able to reach Vrindavan by helicopter from Nov 11, an official said Thursday.

"All necessary arrangements have been made. The service will start from Nov 11," Mathura district magistrate Samir Verma told IANS.

The state-owned Pawan Hans Helicopters Ltd. has already conducted trials. Minor issues were sorted out Wednesday, he said.

"Those who can afford and are under pressure for time will find the service very useful. I see a great potential as the number of visitors to the holy town is increasing every year," Verma added.

The UP Jal Nigam has developed a helipad at a cost of Rs.15 lakh near Panigram. The helicopter service will later be extended to Agra.
