WFI elections aftermath: Rahul Gandhi meets Bajrang Punia, other wrestlers in Haryana

In the aftermath of Wrestling Federation of India elections and the subsequent suspension of the sports body, Congress leader met Olympic bronze medallist Bajrang Poonia and other wrestlers in Haryana's Jhajjar on December 27.

The meeting comes amid continued protests by wrestlers against former WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who has been accused of sexual harassment.

A few days ago, Poonia left his Padma Shri medallion on a footpath in Delhi after he was denied a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Poonia wanted to return his Padma Shri medallion to the PM. The medallion was later picked up by police personnel.

Meanwhile, three-time Commonwealth Games champion wrestler Vinesh Phogat has written an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, joining other wrestlers in voicing her concerns against the current administration of the Wrestling Federation of India.

In her letter, the 29-year-old Phogat communicated her decision to return her prestigious Major Dhyanchand Khel Ratna and Arjuna awards to the government.
