Wrestlers Protest: Will International Wrestlers Have To Wrestle With Politicians? Politics Getting Mixed In Their Stir

NEW DELHI: No one cares whether the international wrestlers who are staging a sit-in protest at Delhi's Jantar Mantar get justice. But, it is certain that there is a competition among politicians seeking political mileage out of the issue. For this, all anti-BJP parties from Congress to Aam Aadmi Party are trying to target ruling BJP. 

Politics getting mixed in wrestlers' stir

Many wrestlers appeared worried about politics getting mixed in the performance. Although no one said anything immediately, but looking at their mood, it can be said that many of them were not at all comfortable with this situation. 

Politics started on Saturday morning when Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi reached to meet the wrestlers. On the other hand Brij Bhushan Singh, President of the Wrestling Association, in a press conference, vented his anger on the opposition parties. He said that except one family and except one arena, where are the rest of the players who have been sexually abused. 

Kejriwal also reached dharna site

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also reached the protest site and interacted with the wrestlers. Yesterday also Aam Aadmi Party leaders Saurabh Bhardwaj and Atishi had reached the protest site. Kejriwal himself is surrounded by many allegations these days. 

At Jantar Mantar, he said that this place is very sacred. In 2011, we started the movement from here itself and changed the politics of the country. These wrestlers will change the sports system of the country from here itself.

We are not with any political party: Sakshi

In the midst of heated politics, wrestler Sakshi Malik took the lead and said that we are not with any political party and those who are coming here and trying to divert the dharna, they themselves will be responsible for that. Congress MP Deepender Hooda has done the right thing. He said that it should not be politicised. When the wrestlers were protesting, he made it clear that he does not want politics. He also refused to talk to CPI leader Vrinda Karat.
