Bajrang Punia and top wrestlers of India decide to protest against Wrestling Federation’s functioning in Delhi

Xtra Time Web Desk: In an unprecedented move, top wrestlers of the country, including Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Bajrang Punia and world championship medalist Vinesh Phogat sat on dharna against the day-to-day functioning of Wrestling Federation of India. Their main reservations are against WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan. The wrestlers were seen protesting in front of Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.  

The wrestlers did not share the exact details of their grievances or their demands but it was clear that they are fed up with the way the Wrestling Federation of India is being run by Singh, who is also a BJP MP from Kaiserganj.

Bajrang, Vinesh, Rio Olympics medallist Sakshi Malik, world championship medallist Sarita Mor, Sangeeta Phogat, Satyawart Malik, Jitender Kinha and CWG medallist Sumit Malik were among 30 wrestlers who have assembled at New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar.

Anshu Malik, Sangeeta Phogat and other wrestlers also tweeted on the same lines with the hashtag BoycottWFIPresident and tagged PMO, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
