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.

Romney urges 'fashionably pessimistic' Republicans 'to stay optimistic' in return speech

Romney urges 'fashionably pessimistic' Republicans 'to stay optimistic' in return speech

London -Former US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has urged Republicans to stay optimistic in his first major speech since losing the 2012 White House race.

Romney said pessimism among Republicans had become "fashionable," adding that he 'utterly rejects that pessimism'.

Since conceding to Barack Obama in November last year, Romney has kept a low profile.

He has made few media appearances and was not present at Obama's inauguration in January.

According to the BBC, Romney's speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is notable as many of the grass-roots activists were sceptical of his conservative credentials in the run-up to the presidential election.

Romney said as someone who just lost the last election, he is 'not the best person to chart the course for the next election'.

Mid-term elections are due to be held in 2014, while some campaigners are already looking ahead to the next presidential race in 2016.
