Wrestlers Protest: The struggle between wrestlers and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh continues. The election of Wrestling Federation of India is to be held on 6th July. In the conversation between Sports Minister Anurag Thakur and the wrestlers, it was decided that Brij Bhushan and no member of his family would participate in this election. It is also true that some members of the BJP MP's family want to contest elections. In such a situation, is the politics and strategy of pressure starting now? After a letter from BJP MLC Devendra Pratap Singh, such questions have started arising.

Devendra, a resident of Gorakhpur, has written a letter to Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur in support of Brij Bhushan. He has demanded permission for Brij Bhushan's family and his associates to contest elections. They say that democracy is being murdered by not doing so.

Wrestlers picketing is a political conspiracy

Devendra is considered a supporter of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. Both the leaders were in Samajwadi Party at one time. Devendra has even described women wrestlers as the tool kit of Modi's opponents. He has written in the letter that the strike of the wrestlers was a political conspiracy. According to Devendra Pratap, if Brij Bhushan's family is not allowed to contest elections, then in a way it will be an insult to UP.

CM Yogi and Brij Bhushan are against each other

Till now no BJP leader has come forward openly in support of Brij Bhushan. In UP politics, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Brij Bhushan are considered opposite to each other. Recently, the photo of a BJP program in Gonda went viral on social media. In this picture, BJP's UP President Bhupendra Chowdhary was standing on the stage with folded hands in front of Brij Bhushan. The image of Brij Bhushan, a six-time Lok Sabha MP, has been that of a strong leader. Yoga Guru Ramdev had said about him that Brij Bhushan should have been in jail after the allegations of women wrestlers.

Appeal to someone from the family to contest elections

BJP MLC Devendra Pratap Singh, after writing a letter to Sports Minister Anurag Thakur, released it in the media. It is clear that they want their letter to be publicised. Let this message go that injustice is being done to Brij Bhushan. If he does not contest the wrestling association elections, then at least his family should get this exemption.

Brij Bhushan himself was the President of Indian Wrestling Association for twelve years. His son Karan Bhushan Singh is the vice-president of the Sangh. His son-in-law Vishal Singh is a member of the executive and also the president of Bihar Wrestling Association. Two relatives of Brij Bhushan are joint secretaries. The wrestlers had given a deadline of June 15 for the arrest of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
