allegations of wrestlers
The wrestlers had opened a front against the President of the Wrestling Federation in January this year. At that time, the Sports Ministry had formed a monitoring committee under the chairmanship of Mary Kom after talking to the wrestlers, but this time again the wrestlers were forced to sit on a dharna. He alleges that no action was taken in the matter after January. Their complaints are being ignored. Even the players allege that the Delhi Police refused to register an FIR against the WFI chief.
