I’m Ready To Resign, But Not As A Criminal: Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh

New Delhi: Responding to allegations brought by the protest wrestlers against him for the first time since the protests began, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, president of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), stated that he is willing to resign if the wrestlers demand it. He continued by saying that he was happy that the Supreme Court had ordered the Delhi Police to register an FIR against him and that he was prepared to assist with the investigation.

“Ask them (the wrestlers), if my resignation only will satisfy them, then I am ready to resign, but not as a criminal. Their demands have been changing since day 1. First, they demanded my resignation, then they brought up this sexual harassment row against me,” he said.

After the protest originally began in January, the IOA and the government were able to appease the wrestlers by promising to look into their accusations against Sharan and the WFI.

The protesting wrestlers claim that they have learned through media sources that Brij Bhushan Singh has received a clean chit from the panel looking into the charges and that the panel’s report is currently at the Ministry of Sports and is not being made public despite requests.
