During this, he has said, “Earlier there was a demand of the wrestlers that an FIR should be lodged. FIR is done. Now they say that he should be inside the jail. Resign from all posts. The Lok Sabha post that I have got, it was not Vinesh Phogat that gave me the public. Not once, but 6-6 times. Not only me, but also to my wife. He didn’t even give me the post of president of the wrestling association, I won by contesting the election.
The BJP MP said that some industrialists of the country and the Congress are behind these allegations. He further said, “I ask why there is only one family and only one akhada behind the allegations? Why are there no other players from Haryana. Why are there no players from Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka etc?”
The MP further said, “They have been sexually abused for 12 years and why doesn’t that sexual abuse happen to other sportspersons of the country? Rest 90 percent players of Haryana are with me because I have worked. Resigning is not a big deal. I’m not a criminal So if I resign, it would mean that I have accepted the charges.
