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.

Five of ten Delhi Metro stations reopen

New Delhi -  Five out of ten Delhi Metro stations that had remained shut since Saturday were opened Sunday afternoon, a DMRC official said.

"Five metro stations -- Pragati Maidan, Mandi House, Rajiv Chowk, Barakhamba Road and Patel Chowk -- were opened at 1.10 p.m. Five other metro stations -- Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, Jor Bagh, Khan Market and Race Course -- remain closed," the official said.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) shut ten stations at 7.40 a.m. Saturday fearing mass protests following the death of the Delhi gang-rape victim in Singapore.

However, inter-change services continued at Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat stations.

"Metro trains were halting at Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat to enable passengers switch trains," the official said.

Delhi Metro, the city's lifeline, ferries nearly 1.8 million passengers over 2,700 trips daily.
