India’s senior wrestling players have accused WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual exploitation, for which the sports ministry has set up a five-member committee to probe, but the players are still not happy.

The senior wrestlers of India were angry.

The Indian wrestling world is currently in the headlines. A few days ago, veteran wrestlers of the country opened a front against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and staged a three-day sit-in at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. These wrestlers included the names of Olympic medalist Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, Ravi Dahiya and Vinesh Phogat. They all wrote to the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) alleging that Bhushan had sexually harassed women athletes. All of them met Sports Minister Anurag Thakur twice and made their statements. After all this, the sports minister formed a committee of five members to investigate the matter on Monday. But even then the dissatisfaction of these players did not go away, rather their grievances increased.

Sports Minister Anurag Thakur constituted a five-member committee chaired by veteran Olympic medalist boxer Mary Kom. The committee includes Olympic medalist wrestler Yogeshwar Dutta, Olympic cell member Tripti Murgunde, former TOPS CEO Rajagopalan and former Sports Authority of India (SAI) executive director (team) Radhika Sriman. The Sports Ministry has assigned these individuals to look after the day-to-day operations of the WFI for the next month to investigate all allegations leveled against Bhushan. After the formation of this committee, the protesting players were expected to be happy, but on the contrary, they were angry.

Today’s big news

Why do wrestlers get angry?

Starting from Sakshi, Bajrang and Vinesh tweeted the same on Tuesday and said that they are not happy with the formation of this committee. This is what they all tweeted. “We were assured that we would be consulted before the oversight committee was formed. It is a matter of great regret that we were not even consulted before the formation of this committee.

It is clear from this tweet that the biggest complaint of these players is why they were not consulted before the formation of the committee. According to all these, these people were given assurances which were not fulfilled and hence these people are angry.

What happened to talk?

Now the question is, when the ministry made a committee to consider the complaints of these people, why did these people want to speak before the committee was formed? One thing is clear that before the committee was formed these players probably wanted to speak so that they could have their say, voice their demands, even who should and should not be included in the committee. Can advise them. Maybe these players do not have confidence in the committee that has been formed? Apart from this, they also share the work of the committee, what they expect from the committee, so that the problem can be solved. But because it was not and the committee was formed without talking to these people, they became angry.

In addition, there are other reasons for the dissatisfaction of these players that are already underway. The players protesting against Bhushan have been saying since the beginning that the WFI president should be removed from the post and the federation should be disbanded. But it didn’t happen. Bhushan has been removed from WFI affairs for the time being and a new committee has been asked to look after the day-to-day operations. In such a situation, if they had been talked to before the formation of the committee, then they all could have kept this issue as well. Although earlier these players raised this demand but it did not happen. If these players had been spoken to before the formation of the committee, they might have put forward this demand again, in a different way, so that they would have hoped that their demand would have been accepted. All this did not happen and Anurag Tagore formed the committee. Now after a month it will be known what has been said in the report of the committee.
