Vinesh Phogat returns Khel Ratna: \’These ways\’ should cease, says Haryana Minister Anil Vij

Concerning wrestler Vinesh Phogat returning her Khel Ratna award in protest in opposition to the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), Haryana House Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday stated that \”such ways of returning awards\” have to be stopped.

“…these ways to return prizes have to be stopped. The gamers gained these awards. “Their awards can\’t be taken again by any group to which they have been issued…The awards honor our nation,” Vij stated in Ambala.

On Tuesday, Vinesh Phogat, 29, determined to return the Khel Ratna and Arjuna awards to the Prime Minister.

She stated such honors grow to be meaningless when wrestlers struggle so arduous for justice, exacerbating the disaster that has struck the game.

Phogat, a two-time World Championship medalist, introduced her resolution in her letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In her message posted on X (previously Twitter), Fugate stated their lives usually are not like these “fancy authorities advertisements” that discuss empowering and uplifting ladies.

\”The Main Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna and Arjun awards don\’t have any which means in my life now. Each girl on this nation desires to stay an honest life. So, Mr. Prime Minister, I need to return the Dhyan Chand and Arjun awards to you in order that this doesn\’t grow to be a actuality,\” she wrote in her letter. Awards are a burden on us in our quest to stay an honest life.”

Her resolution comes days after Olympic medalist Bajrang Punia and Deafylmpics champion Virender Singh Yadav returned their Padma Shri awards, and Rio Video games bronze medalist Sakshi Malik pulled out of the game after Sanjay Singh was elected as IBF president on December 21.

Sanjay Singh is an affiliate of Brij Bhushan Singh Charan, former president of WFI and BJP MP.

Brij Bhushan has been accused of sexual harassment by Phogat, Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik.

The Ministry of Sports activities suspended the newly elected FIFA.

The Indian Olympic Affiliation (IOA) on Wednesday shaped a three-member advert hoc committee to handle the day-to-day affairs of the worldwide sports activities federation.

Indian Wushu Affiliation president Bhupinder Singh Bajwa would be the chairman of the committee with Olympic hockey participant MM Somaya and former worldwide shuttler Manjusha Kanwar being the opposite members.
