The Fact India: Protests by women wrestlers against WFI President and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh continued for the seventh day on Saturday. Delhi Police registered two FIRs against Brij Bhushan late on Friday night. Now the protesting women wrestlers are demanding that Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh be arrested. Meanwhile, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi reached Jantar Mantar in support of the women wrestlers. On the other hand, Braj Bhushan in UP said that I am completely innocent. I will not resign as a criminal.
After reaching Jantar Mantar, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi raised the question as to why the copy of the FIR has not been received till now. The question is why the government is saving Brij Bhushan. He spoke to Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia. She stayed at the picket site for about an hour. Talked for 50 minutes. Vinesh and Sakshi get emotional while talking. Priyanka comforts Vinesh by placing her hand on his head. On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal also reached Jantar Mantar to meet the wrestlers.
Priyanka Gandhi said that no one is aware of what is there in the FIR that has been lodged. Why are they not showing it? He said that when these wrestlers win medals, we all tweet. feel proud. Today they are sitting on the road. They are not getting justice. I don’t understand why the government is saving Brij Bhushan. There are such serious allegations against Brij Bhushan, but no action is being taken. The government should remove him from the post. He should resign.
In UP’s Gonda, Brij Bhushan said in a press conference on Saturday that this is not a protest of the players. I am completely innocent. 90 percent players of Haryana are with me. I will not resign as a criminal. Everyday new demand is coming. Congress has a hand in this whole matter. Why didn’t you complain for 12 years. If the wrestlers protesting accept their resignation, I will give it. If these players get up from the dharna and go back home, do their practice, then I will send their resignation.
According to the Delhi Police, in the case registered, it is alleged that Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh sexually assaulted women wrestlers during international competitions not only in the country but also abroad. Delhi Police said that the wrestlers have been given a copy of the FIR. The copy of the FIR registered under POCSO was not given to the wrestlers as it would be given only to the victim’s family. Delhi Police has registered an FIR under IPC sections 354, 354(A), 354(D) and 34.
