Sakshi Malik made this allegation against suspended WFI President Sanjay Singh

Wrestler Sakshi Malik has accused suspended Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) President Sanjay Singh of conducting the championship as per his wish and distributing fake certificates illegally.

She wrote on X- “Government of India had suspended the activities of Brij Bhushan's associate Sanjay Singh, despite that, Sanjay Singh is conducting the National Wrestling Championship as per his wish and is distributing fake certificates to the players, which is illegal. The National Wrestling Championship organized by the Sports Ministry is to be held in Jaipur, but before that, to prove his dominance over wrestling, Sanjay Singh is illegally signing and distributing certificates of different National Championships.”

Sakshi wrote further, “How can a suspended person from the organization misuse the money of the organization? Tomorrow when the players go to ask for jobs with these certificates, action will be taken against the poor players. Whereas there is no fault of the players. Action should be taken immediately against Sanjay Singh, the fraudster, who is committing all these frauds despite the ban on his activities. I appeal to the Sports Minister Shri Anurag Thakur ji to look into this issue and save the future of the players from getting spoiled.”

Centre had suspended WFI in Dec last year

In December last year, the Central Government had suspended the Wrestling Federation of India after protests by wrestlers.

In fact, when the results of the WFI elections came on December 21, Sanjay Singh, former president of the association and close to BJP leader Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, was elected president of the association.

This was opposed by Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia. After this the central government suspended it.
