'We were not consulted before formation of oversight committee' - Protesting wrestlers

Wrestlers Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik, who staged a sit-in protest at Jantar Mantar for three days, expressed their disappointment by posting identical tweets.

Protesting wrestlers Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat & Sakshi Malik, all expressed their disappointment at the government for not consulting them before the formation of the oversight committee.

The panel that was formed to investigate sexual harassment charges against WFI President Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, will also manage the day-to-day activities of the federation.

India's legendary boxer MC Mary Kom was chosen as the head of the 5-member committee, but it seems the wrestlers aren't too happy with the government's choices.

The protesting wrestlers all posted identical tweets, stating that despite the assurances from the government, they were never consulted before the oversight committee was picked. They also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah & Sports Minister Anurag Thakur in their tweet.

Apart from MC Mary Kom, the committee includes former Olympic medallist Yogeshwar Dutt, former Badminton player and Mission Olympic Cell member Trupti Murgunde, ex-TOPS CEO Rajagopalan and former SAI Executive Director Radhica Sreeman.
