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.

New Delhi - An educational tourist train 'Azadi Express' will be started to enable youths to travel to important places connected with the country's freedom movement, Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said Tuesday.

"The role of Indian Railways in unification of the country during the freedom struggle is historical. I propose to run an educational tourist train called 'Azadi Express' to enable our youths to travel to important places connected with the freedom movement," said Bansal, while presenting his maiden budget 2013-14.

"The train will be made attractive and affordable through concessional fares," he said.
