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.

Kamat resigns as Goa chief ministerPanaji - Digambar Kamat Tuesday resigned as chief minister of Goa and blamed his Congress party's sidelining him ahead of the assembly elections for the debacle in which a massive anti-incumbency wave knocked out the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party alliance.

Kamat submitted his resignation to Goa Governor K. Sankaranarayanan.

Before leaving for the governor's official residence, Kamat told reporters in Margao that he had been side-lined by the Congress, even though he gave a stable government.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Manohar Parrikar is expected to be the leader of his party's legislative party wing. The BJP, along with alliance partner Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), has won 23 seats in the 40-member house with three results yet to be declared.

"We will give a joint letter (along with alliance partner Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party) to the governor, staking claim (to forming government). But there are still three results yet to come. After that we will have a legislative party meeting. The chief minister will be finalised after taking our MLAs and the alliance partner into confidence," Parrikar said.
