Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik urge PM Modi to oust people like Brij Bhushan

‘After the government suspended the wrestling association, Brij Bhushan and Sanjay Singh kept giving statements that this suspension is just a show, we will be reinstated after a few days and we will have control over the wrestling association forever,’ Malik continued in her post.

‘This proved to be true and this letter from the Indian Olympic Association officially confirmed this and proved that even in this new India, the age-old tradition of insulting women will continue.’

Their outburst comes a day after the Indian Olympic Association dissolved the ad-hoc committee, which was running wrestling-related activities in the country, and handed over the reins to the WFI, led by Brij Bhushan’s close aide Sanjay Singh.

The IOA dissolved the panel, saying “there is no further need” for it to continue after revocation of the WFI suspension by United World Wrestling last month.

Veteran sports heroes Phogat, Bajrang Punia and Malik have been protesting against Sanjay Singh, saying the culture of fear that existed during Brij Bhushan’s tenure would continue under him too.
