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.

The Winter Session of Parliament today got off to a stormy start with key UPA supporters Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) triggering uproar in both Houses leading to the adjournment of proceedings.

In the Lok Sabha, SP members trooped into the Well protesting the Centre’s decision to cap the subsidy on cooking gas, while BSP members were in the Well demanding dismissal of the Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh on the ground of law and order.

The no-confidence motion moved by Trinamool Congress over FDI was disallowed in Lok Sabha. Trinamool's move was supported only by BJD and lacked requisite numbers.

Some BJP members were heard saying that SP and BSP were helping the government through their protests.

Members of the Trinamool Congress were on their feet waving some letters.

Some members belonging to Left parties were also seen in the aisle trying to raise certain issues.

Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj was seen on her feet trying to draw attention of Speaker Meira Kumar to, what she termed as, insult of Parliament by going ahead with the decision on FDI.

Earlier, the Speaker read out obituary references to former members and Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray who passed away during the inter-session period.

Amid uproar, she adjourned the House till noon.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh introduced the ministers elevated or inducted in the recent Cabinet reshuffle.

As Mayawati (BSP) raised the issue of reservation to SC/ST in promotions, her party colleagues led by Brajesh Pathak trooped into the Well shouting slogans demanding reservation.

M. Venkaiah Naidu (BJP) also raised some issue but could not be heard in the din.

Chairman Hamid Ansari tried to restore order but as members were unrelenting he adjourned the House for the day.
