Protesting wrestlers reach Haridwar to ‘immerse’ their medals in Ganga but return after changing their mind

Along with this wrestlers had even announced 'hunger strike' following which heavy police deployment has been done at India Gate.

Few of the top international Indian wrestlers had threatened to throw their medals into the Ganga river in Haridwar on Tuesday evening as they believe that returning medals to President or Prime Minister would be a waste.

In a long post on Twitter, the protesting wrestlers said they slammed President Droupadi Murmu and PM Narendra Modi for not listening to their miseries.


The protesting wrestlers said that not only they would throw their heard-earned medals into river Ganges but later sit on a hunger strike “until death” at the India Gate.

The wrestlers were manhandled and detained at Jantar Mantar by Delhi Police on Sunday, at the same time Prime Minister Narendra Modi was inaugurating India’s new parliament building.

Now, Farmer Leader Naresh Tikait arrived in Haridwar where wrestlers have gathered to immerse their medals in river Ganga as a mark of protest against WFI chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over sexual harassment allegations. He took medals from the wrestlers and sought five-day time.

The protesting wrestlers have now returned to their homes following the high-voltage act on the Ganga ghats where over 15 lakh people have come to take dip on the occasion of ‘Ganga Dussehra’.
