Mahavir Phogat responds to the wrestlers’ protest by saying, “If Aamir Khan tweets…”
The wrestlers who are protesting in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar have received support from Mahavir Phogat.
Former wrestler Mahavir Phogat supports athletes
Former wrestler and father of Geeta and Babita Phogat, Mahavir Phogat, has shown his support to the athletes protesting at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar and called for action against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over claims of sexual harassment.
After Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan portrayed Mahavir in his smash hit movie “Dangal,” Mahavir became well-known. However, the Dronacharya awardee claimed he doesn’t have high expectations for the actors, according to India Today.
We would like it if Aamir Khan tweeted in support, according to Mahavir, who was quoted by India Today as saying, “I don’t have expectations from any stars.”
It should be remembered that Aamir Khan stopped using Twitter in 2021 so he could concentrate on his business.
Vinesh Phogat, a three-time gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games, recently lambasted her cousin Babita Phogat, a BJP leader and former wrestler, for telling the wrestlers to fight their struggle on their own and avoid sharing the stage with politicians.
Mahavir Phogat statement
“A dharna was also held in January. The scenario was something we wanted to let the sports minister, BJP leader JP Nadda, and Union home minister Amit Shah know about. They would have solved the problem.” According to Mahavir, “A committee was established to investigate the allegations, but it was ineffective and produced no report.”
“Politics have no place in this matter. It is untrue to claim that my relatives are attempting to seize control. Our entire family is present. We won’t participate in WFI in any way,” he continued.
Even some on social media who were criticizing the actor’s reticence on the subject made their views in response to his.
Babita Phogat is reportedly also involved in this conflict, according to Mahavir.
WFI chief statement
The WFI chief stated on Saturday that his resignation would signify his acceptance of the accusations made by the wrestlers.
In response to accusations that Singh had sexually harassed and exploited female wrestlers, the Delhi Police on Friday filed two FIRs against him. Additionally, he claimed that 90% of the Haryana players support him, while only one wrestling family has continued their demonstration at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.
Wrestlers performed a torch march at Jantar Mantar earlier on April 26 to implore Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pay attention to their “Mann Ki Baat.”
