Government is trying to protect Brij Bhushan: Vinesh Phogat

Asked about the meeting the wrestlers had with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Phogat said, “They had given a few proposals that they can do that much for us but except the arrest of Brij Bhushan, everything is happening.”

On being asked why Singh is not being arrested, the firebrand wrestler shot back.

“You have to ask Amit Shah, why he (WFI chief) is not being arrested. He is such a powerful man that the government is trying to shield him. So getting him arrested is not easy but we are continuing our fight.”

Almost half-the-year has passed but the wresters’ protest is continuing.

Phogat said she can’t tell when will their protest end.

“I can’t tell you how long our protest will linger, the day he is arrested we will also end our protest. But if justice comes late, what’s the point.”

“Our fight may end one day but the seniors citizens of the country are still fighting. We are with them, so a few fights won’t end on this Earth. People are being martyred, people are in grief, unemployment is hitting the youth, the government must think about all these issues.

“It (Government) must listen, if so many people have come forward to raise their voice. The government should not ignore them.”
