Wrestlers Step Back From Immersing Medals In Ganga; Give Five-Days Ultimatum

Haridwar: Wrestlers who had assembled in Haridwar to immerse their medals into the Ganga river on Tuesday postponed their protest move and given five days ultimatum seeing action against WFI president and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over charges of sexual harassment.

Farmer leader, Naresh Tikait joined the wrestlers on Tuesday and took the medals from the wrestlers and asked for a five-day period before taking any further action.

Protesting wrestlers took off from the Ganga river site after farmer leader Naresh Tikait intervened and demanded that they give him five days.

Wrestlers Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat, and Bajrang Punia reached Haridwar on Tuesday in a potent show of protest to submerge their well-earned medals in the Ganga River.

The wrestlers took this step to highlight their demand for immediate arrest on the charges of sexual harassment made against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, the president of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) and BJP MP.

Country’s ace wrestlers who are protesting against the WFI chief Brij Bhushan Singh demanding his arrest, have taken a strong stance. In a powerful act of protest, they have declared their intention to throw their hard-earned medals into the river Ganga in Haridwar at 6 pm on Tuesday.

They also want to start an ongoing hunger strike at India Gate in New Delhi after this symbolic act to highlight their demand for justice and responsibility in this case against the Wrestling Federation of India president and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

In a statement, wrestlers said, “These medals are our lives, our souls. There would be no reason to live after throwing them in the Ganga today. So, we will stage a hunger strike until death at India Gate after that.”

This move came after several wrestlers, including Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia, and Vinesh Phogat, were detained by the Delhi police on Sunday when they were marching towards the new parliament to stage a protest against WFI chief Singh. The Delhi police had also filed an FIR against the wrestlers.

Wrestlers, including Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia, have been staging a protest at Jantar Mantar for more than a month, demanding the immediate arrest of Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on claims of sexual harassment.
