Wrestlers' protest: Brij Bhushan claims Deependar Hooda and Bajranj Punia are involved in a plot and would soon make a major disclosure

Indian wrestlers have continued their protests, and various political officials have been there to offer their support. The WFI head Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh is being criticised by wrestlers for sexually harassing seven female wrestlers. The first FIR was filed under the POCSO Act and included allegations against a juvenile wrestler, while the second one dealt with outraged modesty.

Hours after the Supreme Court instructed them to do so, the Delhi Police, which is part of Amit Shah's Home Ministry, filed the two first information reports (FIRs) amid protests in Delhi's Jantar Mantar by wrestlers like Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, and Vinesh Phogat.

The head of the WFI, Brij Bhushan, said on Sunday that Congressman Deepender Hooda and Olympic bronze medalist Bajrang Punia were behind the plot against him. He further stated that “a big industrialist is responsible for the conspiracy against me.”

The BJP member from Kaiserganj said that he was ready to resign if doing so would prompt demonstrators to go back to their homes. “I need to establish my innocence… I'll step down right now if the party wants me to, he said.

According to Brij Bhushan, Congressman Deepender Hooda and wrestler Bajrang Punia “hatched the whole plan. We can demonstrate this using an audio (clip). It will be given to the Delhi Police when the time comes.

The WFI leader claims that the protesters are only “toys” in the hands of the opponents. “The Congress and other opposition parties have turned all of these players into toys. Political motivation is behind it, not my departure.

Brij Bhushan commented, “She does not know the facts,” in regard to Priyanka Gandhi, the head of the Congress, backing the wrestlers in their protest. Deepender Hooda, the architect of the scheme, led her to the protest site.

“She will understand that she should not have gone to the protest location the day she learns the truth or the day the investigation report is out. I formally dare them to run against me in the Lok Sabha elections from Kaiserganj, Gonda, Shravasti, or any other nearby seat. The outcome will put all misconceptions to rest.
