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.

Madhya Pradesh HC dismisses PIL against Army chief

Tuesday - Apr 17, 2012, 03:53pm (GMT+5.5)
[+] Text [-]

Madhya Pradesh High Court has dismissed a PIL which demanded that Army Chief General V. K. Singh should not get “post-retirement rehabilitation” in view of the recent controversies.

Dismissing the PIL, division bench of Justices Ajit Singh and R. S. Jha said the issue did not come in the court’s purview. The court also said that petitioner failed to prove how the acts of the Army Chief had damaged the reputation of the force.

The PIL, filed by Bhopal-based RTI activist, V. K. Naswa, referred to recent controversies, including the one related to Gen. Singh’s age, alleged bribe offer made to him in a truck deal, and the leak of Gen. Singh’s letter to the Prime Minister, and stated that these had sullied Army’s image.

Therefore, the court should direct that no “post-retirement rehabilitation” should be done in his case, such as appointment as Governor, etc, it said.
