WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh made a big statement amid the renewed protest of the Indian wrestlers. Singh said that he would be happy to hand in his resignation if the wrestlers gathered at the Jantar Mantar agreed to quit the protest.
The WFI (Wrestling Federation of India) president also said that he is content with the judgment of the Supreme Court to permit the police to register two FIRs against him.
The first FIR reported against him was under the POCSO Act, for sexual harassment offenses against a minor, and the second one was registered pertaining to the complaint filed by the other women wrestlers.
Brij Bhushan said,
“I am content with the decision of the honorable court. The wrestlers have been raising their demands for so many days and they were protesting for the same. They went to the court and the court also took cognizance.”
“The Supreme Court has ordered that an FIR should be registered and the matter be investigated. I am totally content with the decision. I will cooperate in the investigation wherever necessary.”
The WFI president further said,
“I am not only content with the decision but also I agree with it because I am a citizen of this country and the Supreme Court is the apex court in this country. We cannot disagree with or raise questions on the court. We welcome the decision of the Supreme Court.”
Brij Bhushan also opined that the wrestlers have been inconsistent about their demands. He said,
“Their demand changes every now and then. You should consider the agitation right from the beginning. At that time they demanded that the WFI president should resign. After that, they brought up the issue of sexual harassment. After that, they demanded that the government should conduct an inquiry.”
