Removed wrestlers from Jantar-Mantar, what will be the next strategy?


On Sunday, there was a huge uproar at Jantar-Mantar in Delhi. A scuffle broke out between wrestlers marching from Jantar-Mantar towards Parliament and the Delhi Police demanding the arrest of Wrestling Federation President Brijbhushan Sharan Singh. After this the police took all the wrestlers and their supporters including Vinesh-Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia into custody and evacuated the Jantar-Mantar. Not only this, the police have imposed Section 144 on Jantar-Mantar and said that the wrestlers will not be allowed to go back there again. In such a situation the question is what will be the future strategy of the wrestlers?



PM Modi inaugurated the new Parliament building on Sunday. On the other hand, the wrestlers had announced to hold Mahila Mahapanchayat in front of the new parliament building. The Delhi Police refused to allow it. After this, heavy security forces were deployed and barricaded at the Jantar-Mantar itself. On Sunday, police tried to stop the wrestlers when they started marching from Jantar-Mantar, three kilometers away from the new Parliament House. Meanwhile, the wrestlers tried to break the security cordon and move forward. This was followed by scuffles and scuffles between protesters and police personnel.


A case was registered against the wrestlers, the police vacated the Jantar-Mantar

After the commotion, the Delhi Police evacuated the Jantar-Mantar, where protests had been going on for a month. The police say that now the wrestlers will not be allowed to go there again. Police said that 700 people have been detained from Delhi. At the same time, 109, including three wrestlers, were taken into custody from Jantar-Mantar. However, all the women protesters including Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik were released in the evening itself.



Following this, the police registered a case against Vinesh-Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia and others for assaulting policemen, mischief and obstructing the work of a public servant on duty.

What will the wrestler do next?



Agitation not over – Sakshi Malik

Olympic medalist Sakshi Malik took to Twitter and vowed to continue his sit-in at Jantar-Mantar. He tweeted, “Our movement is not over… We will start our Satyagraha with Jantar-Mantar. There will be no dictatorship in this country, but satyagraha of women wrestlers.



There is no point in going home – Punia

Bajrang Punia said, until justice is served there is no point in going home, I will meet the rest of the wrestlers and together we will decide what to do next. He said it was unfortunate for the country that an accused of sexual harassment attended the inauguration of the new Parliament building. Delhi Police registered an FIR against us within 7 hours, but it took them 7 days to register an FIR against Brij Bhushan.
