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.

Haryana CM skips talks with sacked Maruti workers

Gurgaon -  Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has rescheduled to Feb 21 his proposed meeting with sacked Maruti Suzuki workers, a trade union leader said Tuesday.

Hooda was earlier expected to meet the workers Wednesday.

Satbir Singh, state president, Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), said Hooda has now assured them of talks on the issue Feb 21.

After the "Nyaya-Adhikar Rally" Jan 27 by several trade unions at Rohtak, the chief minister's home town, Hooda had agreed to consider a proposal to meet the workers sacked by Maruti following violence at the Manesar plant here, he said.

"Feb 13 was proposed for talks with the worker leaders on their demands regarding the sacked Maruti employees but as the chief minister was busy with the Surajkund Crafts Mela the meeting has been deferred," Shiv Bhatia, media advisor to Hooda, told IANS.

"The meeting is scheduled to be held at the chief minister's office in Chandigarh," he said.

After the July 18, 2012 Manesar plant violence, that claimed the life of a senior executive and left dozens of others injured, nearly 2,500 workers including 546 permanent employees were sacked.

Worker unions are demanding the reinstatement of the terminated workers and withdrawal of cases against their jailed colleagues.
