WFI labels wrestlers' protest 'hidden, personal agenda' in letter to Sports Ministry

Protest a 'conspiracy to create such adverse atmosphere in public to create undue pressure': Wrestling Federation of India

The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has rejected all the allegations, including that of sexual harassment against its president Brijbhushan Sharan Singh.

In a letter written to the Sports Ministry, the wrestling body said the protest at Jantar Mantar was a 'personal, hidden agenda' of wrestlers.

'The protest is not in the best interest of the Wrestlers nor for promoting good Wrestling in India, but it has some personal as well as hidden agenda to dislodge the current fairest and strict management of WFI,' the wrestling body said in its response to the Sports Ministry.

Responding to the charges of mismanagement, WFI wrote they 'are managed by an elected body as per its constitution, and therefore, there is no scope for arbitrariness and mismanagement in WFI by anyone individually, including the president.'

The WFI sent its reply on Friday evening after being asked by the sports ministry to respond to the allegations within 72 hours.
