Wrestlers made many serious allegations against Wrestling Federation President Brij Bhushan Singh. The wrestlers demanded his removal. The wrestlers also said that Brij Bhushan is running the wrestling association in an arbitrary manner. In many competitions, coaches are not sent with the wrestlers and they are threatened for protesting. Vinesh Phogat said that Brij Bhushan has exploited many girls. Even their loved ones do the same. Apart from girls, male coaches also exploit female coaches. on
Brij Bhushan Singh hit back and said that ever since the trial scale has been made to send the players to any competition, since then these wrestlers are unhappy. These players do not want to play national games and do not want to give trials. This is the reason why there is opposition. Most of the wrestlers are with the union.
The wrestlers claimed that there were five to six girls with them who had been sexually assaulted and that they had enough evidence to prove it, but did not want to make the evidence public. The wrestlers also said that they would take the matter to the court. The wrestlers have made it clear that their protest is separate from politics and they do not need the support of any politician.
Meanwhile, an attempt was made to negotiate on behalf of the wrestling association. Sports Ministry officials and Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur also spoke to the wrestlers, but to no avail. Wrestlers had a long discussion with the Sports Minister but the result did not come. Wrestlers are adamant on demanding the resignation of Brij Bhushan Singh.
