In a new development, India's top wrestlers, who have been protesting against BJP MP and chief of the country's wrestling federation Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, met Home Minister Amit Shah. The meeting according to the sources say the meeting that began at 11 pm lasted for more than an hour and that it was attended by Mr Punia, Sakshee Malikkh, Sangita Phogat and Satyawart Kadian.
The wrestlers demanded an impartial probe and quick action against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh - who has been accused of sexual harassment by seven female wrestlers, including a minor, they said.
Amit Shah assured the wrestlers that the law remains the same for everyone, it's learned. "Let the law take its own course," he reportedly told the wrestlers. Earlier, the protesting wrestlers had sought a meeting with Amit Shah after their five-day deadline for action against the wrestling federation chief ended on Saturday.
In all fairness, the government is expected to announce an action plan to defuse the crisis that has been a bad PR for the Narendra Modi government.
