New Delhi. The protest of wrestlers at Jantar Mantar against the President of Wrestling Federation of India Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh may have ended. But, this controversy does not seem to stop. Six wrestlers, including Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik and Vinesh Phogat, who protested against the WFI president, have been exempted from the Asian Games trials. In the matter of giving exemption to these wrestlers, Olympic medalist wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt had objected. He had raised questions on the wrestlers whether this was the aim of the wrestlers who staged the sit-in. Vinesh Phogat has now attacked Yogeshwar Dutt in this matter. He has made many serious allegations against Yogeshwar in a long tweet.
Vinesh Phogat wrote in her tweet, “When I heard the video of Yogeshwar Dutt, his cheap laugh got stuck in my 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 badly. When two female wrestlers came out to drink water, he came out and told them that nothing should happen to Brij Bhushan. Go and do your practice.

In her tweet, Vinesh further made serious allegations against Yogeshwar Dutt and wrote, “After the committee meeting, he leaked the names of women wrestlers to Brij Bhushan and the media. He also called the houses of many women wrestlers and told them to make their girl understand. He was already publicly giving statements against women wrestlers, yet he was kept in both the committees. He constantly prevented wrestlers and coaches from joining the movement of women wrestlers. The whole wrestling world understood that Yogeshwar was eating a liar from Brijbhushan’s plate.
