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 - With the rainy weather showing no signs of abating, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh postponed their trips to Uttar Pradesh Tuesday, party leaders said.

While a major road show had been planned for Rajnath Singh on his maiden arrival to the state capital after becoming the party chief again, Rahul Gandhi, also making his first visit after becoming party no.2, was to drive to Amethi, his parliamentary constituency, for a two-day stay.

BJP state unit chief Laxmikant Bajpayi, while thanking party workers and supporters for their efforts to give Singh a hearty welcome, said the visit of the party chief had been put off.

"Rajnath Singh will not be coming and the new programme would be decided later," he said. A road show and half a dozen party programmes had been planned to felicitate Singh.

Informing about the cancellation of Gandhi's tour, party spokesman Akhilesh Pratap Singh told IANS that he would now be arriving Thursday to visit his parliamentary constituency.
