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 - Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati Monday demanded that president's rule be imposed in Uttar Pradesh, and c laimed there was a total breakdown of law and order in the state.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters here, the former chief minister said the state government has failed on all fronts and was being run by mafia and goons.

"In ten months of its rule, the Samajwadi Party (SP) government has flouted all norms and has opened floodgates of graft," she alleged.

"There are rapes taking place like never before, criminals are having a free run, such a situation is not acceptable," said Mayawati.

Referring to the communal flare-ups and riots in the state, she demanded that Governor B.L. Joshi take notice of the prevailing situation and recommend imposition of president's rule.
