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 - The Rajya Sabha was disrupted Tuesday as DMK and AIADMK members created a din over the Sri Lanka issue.

The upper house saw two adjournments during question hour, first for 15 minutes and then at noon. When the house reassembled again, DMK and AIADMK members again trooped near the chairman's podium raising slogans.

Some waved placards with pictures of late Tamil Tigers chief Velupillai Prabhakaran's son Balachandran, who was allegedly shot dead by Sri Lankan troops in cold blood.

Amid the din, the house was adjourned till 2 p.m.
