Delhi CM meets wrestlers protesting at Jantar Mantar

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal arrived at Jantar Mantar and met wrestlers protesting against Wrestlers Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on Saturday over allegations of sexual harassment.

The Delhi CM raised the slogans Bharat Mata Ki Jai, Inquilab Zindabad, and Vande Mataram at Jantar Mantar. The CM said, “Friends, those wrestlers of our country, those players of our nation who glorified the name of Bharat in the whole world… Today, for the past week, we have been sitting and protesting at the Jantar Mantar”.

“Why are they protesting? Because one of the big leaders of their party (referring to the BJP) mistreated the girls, our sisters, who glorified the name of our country. By the way, if any girl of our country, any sister of our country, or any woman of our country is ill-treated, that person should be immediately caught and the harshest punishment should be given. He should be hanged,” Kejriwal added.

Delhi Police on Friday registered two FIRs against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh following allegations of sexual harassment by women wrestlers.
