Post shared by the wrestlers on social media.
Thursday is the 19th day of the country’s top wrestlers’ dharna at Jantar Mantar demanding the arrest of Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. Today the wrestlers will protest in the form of Black Day. The wrestlers have appealed to the countrymen to lodge a protest in their support by tying black bands from 10 am to 2 pm. For this, all the players have also shared the post on social media.
At the same time, Vinesh Phogat revealed that when Brij Bhushan’s son contested for the post of MLA, the players were forcefully taken away from the Lucknow camp. A campaign was organized in the son’s constituency. Votes were invited from house to house.
This is probably from 2014 or 2016. I myself also went to campaign. I refused too, then the coach came to me and said that this is a special order from Netaji. Will have to go. The one who does not go, will face the consequences.
Used to feed food by forcefully calling home, then used to post photos: Vinesh
In 2018, I had to go to the national competition. We were going by our ticket. But we were coerced whether we will pay for it or not. Used to book flight tickets. Me and my husband were picked up from Lucknow airport, we were directly taken to Brij Bhushan’s house.
Where we were kept sitting for 2 hours. We thought that maybe they are going straight to Gonda. When there was a competition in Gonda, he used to forcefully send a vehicle and get it called at his home. Used to feed there. Then he used to get photographs taken. Then he used to post those photos on social media to show how close we are.
I was also offered money during January’s dharna: Bajrang
We are not so coward that we will do politics on this issue of sisters and daughters. So much so that it is God’s blessing that whatever party you go to, you will get an opportunity there. It is not that no one should ask us. Saying that we are close to Deepender Hooda, this protest is of Congress.
While our photo is also with the BJP people. There are photographs with all the leaders from the Prime Minister. In January, when we were sitting on dharna, Brij Bhushan even offered money for me to a boy living with me through a doctor.
