Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has maintained he is not going to resign from the publish after damning allegations levelled towards him by high India wrestlers who’re staging a protest towards his regime within the nationwide capital since Wednesday.
Brij Bhushan says he’ll reply to the accusations in a while Friday after four PM (IST) throughout a press convention and claimed he hasn’t met both with Union Home Minister Amit Shah nor with Sports Minister Anurag Thakur.
“I haven’t spoken to anyone neither Amit Shah nor Anurag Thakur. I don’t have any answer to your queries, will respond to everything at 5 pm. You can speak to the Haryana athletes who are here about how I am,” Brij Bhushan told media on Friday.
“Few media channels I may flee overseas. I haven’t. I am here in Nandininagar till 23rd,” he said.
Wrestler Anshu Malik had claimed the WFI chief would leave the door of his room open during the Junior World Championship while staying in the same floor as the junior girls.
“WFI president stayed on the same floor and across the room from the junior girls at the Junior World Championships. He would leave his door open. Every girl was made uncomfortable,” mentioned the 21-year-old wrestler.
However, Brij Bhushan says Anshu wasn’t a part of the occasion.
“The participant who has made allegations of me leaving the door opened wasn’t a part of the match,” he said.
He said, “Few media channels are reporting I may flee the country. I haven’t. I am here in Nandininagar (UP).”
“I’m an elected official, not right here at anybody’s mercy,” Brij Bhushan said while reiterating he won’t step down.
