Who is Brijbhushan Sharan Singh? WFI chief & BJP MP accused of sexual harassment

While he has been a BJP MP for 5 of his 6 terms, in 2009 Brijbhushan Sharan Singh won his Lok Sabha seat from a Samajwadi party ticket.

Brijbhushan Sharan Singh - President of the Wrestling Federation of India

The man against whom the entire wrestling community has united. The man who is alleged to have sexually harassed 5 to 6 women wrestlers, the man who's accused of mismanagement of funds.

So, who really is Brijbhushan Singh?

He has been the President of the Wrestling Federation for 11 years. A 6-time Member of Parliament, Brijbhushan currently is the elected representative from the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha constituency.

Having joined student politics in the 1980s, Singh fought his first election in 1991. While he has been a BJP MP for 5 of his 6 terms, in 2009 he won his Lok Sabha seat from a Samajwadi party ticket.

A seasoned politician, the sexual harassment allegations against him add to a long list of misdeeds he's been accused of.

Singh was an accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case. He has also had a case against him for harbouring associates from the underworld in the 90s.

He has been accused of dacoity, attempt to murder and rioting as well. In 2021, he was caught on camera, slapping a young wrestler at the Under-15 Championship in Ranchi.

While he survived all those incidents in the past, the newfound allegations might just take him down this time around.
