Wrestlers Protest: Slogans were raised against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the ongoing demonstration of wrestling wrestlers at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, after which the wrestlers have now advised the agitators not to use the venue as a means of protest and demonstration for political gains. Wrestler Bajrang Punia said about this that he is fighting for justice for the daughters of India, but some people are trying to present the protest as an ‘inflammatory movement’.
Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Bajrang Punia said that some people are trying to take the movement in a different direction. They have joined our dharna and want to make it a ‘provocative movement’. We oppose this. This movement is a fight for justice for the daughters of India, it is a fight to save Indian wrestling and the people who are here (gathered) are not for any political gain but in support of us.
‘Common man also deserves respect’
Talking to the media, Punia said that politics and other things come later, the dignity and respect of women comes first. He appealed to the protesters not to join politics and said that this is a movement of players, so do not join any political party. In this case, Vinesh Phogat said, ‘We respect all the people sitting on constitutional posts. We will not say anything that is against their respect, but the common man also deserves respect and we should also get respect.
