What is the matter?
Let us tell you that BJP leader and wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt had raised questions about giving exemptions to the wrestlers protesting in the Asian Games trials. He released the video and said that don’t know who has made the criteria that the six wrestlers sitting on the dharna will directly participate in the final trial. Yogeshwar had said that if such trials are to be held, then apart from these wrestlers, Olympic medalists Ravi Dahiya, Deepak Punia, Anshu Malik, and Sonal Malik who are the number one wrestlers in the country. They should also be given a chance. It is wrong to give exemption to only six wrestlers.
Vinesh Phogat targets Yogeshwar Dutt
Targeting Yogeshwar Dutt, Vinesh Phogat accused him of licking the soles of Brij Bhushan Singh. Vinesh had said in a long post in a post shared on social media that when he heard the video of Yogeshwar Dutt, that poor laugh of his got stuck in his mind. He was a part of both the committees made for women wrestlers.
When women wrestlers were narrating their ordeals in front of the committee, he used to laugh very rudely. Vinesh Phogat has termed wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt as the Jaichand of wrestling. At the same time, the wrestlers also criticized Yogeshwar Dutt in a live video message recently.
Took time to prepare
Sakshi had said, “We did not ask for an exemption in trials, just asked for time for preparation. Rio Olympics 2016 bronze medalist Sakshi said, “We have not taken away anyone’s rights. We only sought time as we were away from wrestling for six months but you are spreading the wrong information.
Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Bajrang had said, “If you had a problem with the trial of an event, you should have gone to the sports minister.” But you decided to spread venom through social media. He also said, “If it is proved that we had asked for an exemption, then we are ready to quit wrestling. We never wrote any letter for exemption.
