Ready To Quit Jobs To Get Justice: Wrestlers

Meanwhile, Olympic medalist wrestlers Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia have alleged that the people who discredited their medals are now after their jobs. 

Phogat and Punia took to Twitter and claimed that their lives are at stake and if their jobs are an obstacle in the way of justice they are willing to quit their jobs.

"Those who told our medals to be worth Rs 15 each are now after our jobs. Our life is at stake, a job is a very small thing in front of that. If the job is seen to be an obstacle in the way of justice, then we will not take even ten seconds to leave it. Do not show fear of job." Punia and Phogat tweeted.
