In the midst of the wrestler controversy, the central government has taken a big decision regarding the Wrestling Federation. The central government has suspended all activities of the Wrestling Federation.
For the last few days, some wrestlers were agitating against the Wrestling Federation. Meanwhile, the Central Government has taken several strict actions regarding the Wrestling Federation. The Central Government has decided to suspend all activities of the Wrestling Federation until the Oversight Committee is formally appointed. This includes suspension of ongoing ranking contests and refund of entry fees charged from participants for ongoing activities.
The announcement follows the government’s decision to appoint a monitoring committee on January 20, 2023. Which will handle the day to day activities of WFI. The decision from the central government comes soon after WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar was suspended with immediate effect. Suspended WFI official Vinod Tomar has denied any communication regarding his suspension.
Tomar said that, I do not know about this. I came to know only from a call from ANI that I have been suspended. I have not received any information about this before. I haven’t done anything wrong. While giving a statement in favor of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on Saturday evening itself, Vinod Tomar had said that most of the people of the Federation are with Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and personally also I do not find the allegations of the players right.
Tomar said that the wrestlers who are on strike at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar are leveling allegations of sexual harassment and financial embezzlement against the WFI president. He has not presented any evidence to substantiate his claims.
