Wrestlers’ strike against the President of Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh continues even today. The wrestlers who are adamant on demanding action on Brij Bhushan Sharan have got the support of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi today. Priyanka Gandhi today reached Jantar Mantar to show support to the wrestlers and showed solidarity with the women wrestlers at the protest site.
Priyanka was seen listening to Sakshi Malik
Congress General Secretary was seen listening to top women wrestlers like Sakshi Malik and Vinesh Phogat. A few days ago, Priyanka Gandhi had raised her voice in support of the protesting wrestlers and attacked the government, asking whether it wanted to save the culprits in the case.
Target on BJP
The Congress general secretary had also said that the pleas of sportspersons who have brought laurels to the country were being ignored and added that when “the arrogance of a party and its leaders” is sky high, such voices are crushed. Congress leaders like Bhupinder Hooda, Deepender Hooda and Udit Raj had also joined Jantar Mantar earlier this week to show solidarity with the protesting wrestlers.
Two FIRs on Brij Bhushan Sharan
With support for the protesting wrestlers mounting, the Delhi Police on Friday registered two FIRs against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over allegations of sexual harassment leveled by seven women wrestlers.
Earlier, a Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha was told by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Delhi Police, that the case would be registered on Friday, hours after the first FIR was filed.
