This agitation is not over yet: Sakshi

After the action of Delhi Police, wrestler Sakshi Malik said that this agitation is not over yet.

Media wanted to know from Sakshi what would be his next course of action. His answer was, "The further course of action is that the picketing will continue."

In this whole matter, the opposition and civil organizations have criticized the police action. This issue also dominated the social media throughout the day, although there is no official response from the government and the BJP.

In a tweet, Sakshi Malik said, “After being released from police custody, we will start our Satyagraha back at Jantar Mantar. In this country, there will be no dictatorship, but the satyagraha of women wrestlers.

Sakshi Malik has also shared a video of the misbehavior with the wrestlers on Twitter. Commenting on this, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Twitter, "Such treatment of our sportspersons, who bring laurels to the country, is highly condemnable."

In another tweet, Sakshi Malik said, "It is a sad day for Indian sports. Brij Bhushan, the goon who sexually assaulted, is sitting in Parliament today and we are being dragged on the road.”

Speaking to the media, Olympic medalist wrestler Bajrang Punia said, “Our people are being detained. In Haryana, our people have been caught in Delhi.

A picture of wrestler Vinesh Phogat lying on the ground with the tricolor in hand is also going viral on social media.

Sharing this viral picture on Twitter, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi wrote, “The medals on the chest of the players are the pride of our country. The arrogance of the BJP government has increased so much that the government is mercilessly trampling the voices of our women players under their boots. This is totally wrong. The whole country is seeing the arrogance of the government and this injustice."

Delhi Police has registered a case against protest organizers including Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat under sections of rioting and obstructing government work.

Bajrang Punia still in police custody

After this, some wrestlers were released on Sunday evening. Vinesh Phogat said that me, Sangeeta Phogat and Sakshi Malik have been released. Bajrang Punia is still in police custody. We told the police that they cannot keep us inside without any legal procedure. But police said don't teach us the law.

Wrestlers insulted on same day new Parliament House was opened: Tikait

Rakesh Tikait said, "It will be written in the pages of history that women wrestlers were insulted on the same day the new Parliament House was inaugurated."

Special CP of Delhi Police Dipendra Pathak, however, said that those who tried to go ahead by breaking the barricade were stopped and taken away from there to another place.

Women wrestlers had appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in their matter. But the Prime Minister or any minister of the Government of India has not said anything on this subject yet.
