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.

Chennai - Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa Friday said the government will set up a sports fishing-cum-eco park at Chetpet lake here.

Announcing this in the assembly, Jayalalithaa said the 15 acre lake will be regenerated at an outlay of Rs.42 crore and would include a sports fishing-cum-eco park.

She said several entertainment activities like adventure water sports, fishing, boat rides, open air theatre, play area for children and others will be set up.

Jayalalithaa said a fish food canteen will be set up and a multi-storied parking lot will also be constructed which would reduce the traffic congestion in that area.

She also added that the government would subsidise the cost of communication handsets used by fishermen and also set up necessary infrastructure.

Jayalalithaa said fishermen would be informed information received from the Hyderabad based Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Service.
