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.

Shimla -  The Himachal Pradesh High Court has sought information from the government on steps taken for providing equal opportunity to the disabled.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Ajai Srivastav on the inadequate implementation of the provisions of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act of 1995 by the state.

"We are of the view that the state should address the issues as required under the act. A committee headed by the chief secretary should look into all the issues in a coordinated manner," Chief Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Sanjay Karol said in an order made available Tuesday.

The court, while listing the matter for next hearing Jan 1, asked the Himachal Pradesh Board of School Education and Himachal Pradesh University to file affidavits within three weeks with respect to their obligations under the act.
