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.

Fire engulfs Indian Oil plant in Surat, no causalities reportedSurat - A major fire broke out at a plant of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) in Surat on Saturday.

No causalities are reported and no one was injured in the fire.

Talking to reporters, Assistant Commissioner of Police, A. R. Munshi said that the situation was brought under control as fire tenders rushed to site to douse the raging inferno.

"We received the information half an hour ago that a tank at one of the plants of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has caught fire. Following the guidelines of the immediate disaster management, we have begun to douse the fire.

"The main aim is to cool the fire as soon as possible. Fire fighters are at the site and the situation is under control as the fire has been stopped from spreading any further. We would need more fire fighters to douse the fire," said Munshi.

Smoke was billowing from the plant and the locals who were standing outside the plant could see the rising flames.

Fire safety regulations are lax, rarely implemented and not periodically reviewed in most small-scale commercial places, residential areas and firms across India.
