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.

Karat seeks justice for youth jailed for false terror charges

Lucknow - CPI-M leader Prakash Karat met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Tuesday and asked him to rehabilitate Muslim youth who had been cleared of terror charges.

Accompanied by CPI-M leader Subhashini Ali, party general secretary Karat handed over a list of nine Muslims, all from Kanpur, who had been jailed for eight to nine years on terror charges before being absolved of them.

Seeking their rehabilitation, social security and jobs, Karat and Ali told the chief minister that targetting such people without proof was also an attack on the secular fabric of the country.

The chief minister assured the duo that his government and the Samajwadi Party (SP) had declared in their manifesto that innocent Muslims who have been jailed on fabricated charges would be helped.

"Innocent Muslims youngsters who have been falsely implicated on terror charges will not only be helped in their legal battle and freed, but the state government will give them justice and compensation," Yadav told the communist leaders.
