Wrestlers Protest Update: After Wrestler Bajrang Punia invited all parties to join their agitation, Sports Authority of India (SAI) representatives visited protest site, Jantar Mantar and interacted with the wrestlers who have been protesting against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. SAI officials had conversations with the wrestlers regarding the matter.
One of the SAI officials told the reporters,
“I had come to meet wrestlers and listen to them. I will not say anything on demands.”
Meanwhile, the Union sports ministry has announced the Wrestling Federation of India’s (WFI) suggested elections on May 7 as “null and void”. The latest outcome is a move to alleviate the agitating wrestlers, who have renewed their sit-in protest after a gap of three months.
The ministry on Monday requested the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to create a transitory or ad-hoc committee to supervise the day-to-day affairs of the WFI and to execute elections to its new executive committee within 45 days of the formation of the provisional body.
