They include Wrestler Vinesh Phogat, Olympic Medallist Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, Jitender Kinha and CWG medallist Sumit Malik etc. They are protesting against Wrestling Federation of India President Brij Bhushan Singh. Their allegation is that Brij Bhushan Singh Sexually exploited some female sportspersons. Until their demands are met the wrestlers have refused to move from Jantar Mantar, sending Alarm bells ringing for Modi govt. Why you ask? Because Brij Bhushan Singh is a BJP MP. So what’s happening here, what exactly triggered the protest from the wrestlers? What has brij Bhushan singh said about this? And what is the govt doing?
