Sakshi Malik Returns to Work in Railways, But Protest Persists “Our Struggle Continues”
In response to recent media reports suggesting her withdrawal from the ongoing wrestlers’ protest against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, Sakshi Malik, on Monday, categorically dismissed such claims and affirmed that the “fight for justice” will persist.
Setting the record straight, Malik clarified that she remains fully committed to participating in the protests and firmly rejected any notions of stepping back from the ongoing movement against WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
Taking to Twitter, the 30-year-old wrestler expressed, “This news is entirely false. None of us involved in the fight for justice have backed down, nor will we. While fulfilling my responsibilities in the Railways, I am actively engaged in the Satyagraha (protest). Our fight will continue until justice is served. Kindly refrain from spreading misinformation.”
Fellow wrestler Bajrang Punia also refuted the reports as baseless and took to Twitter to state, “The rumors of us withdrawing from the movement are completely false. These misleading reports are being circulated to discredit us. We have not retreated, nor have we withdrawn from the movement. The claims of women wrestlers filing an FIR (First Information Report) are also unfounded. We will persist in our fight until justice is achieved,” Punia tweeted.
The wrestlers’ collective resolve remains unshaken as they press forward, demanding justice and seeking resolutions to their grievances. Their determination to fight for what they believe in underscores their commitment to bring about positive change in the wrestling community.
As the protests continue, athletes like Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia serve as prominent voices, ensuring that their concerns are heard and their aspirations for a fair and just system are realized. Their unwavering dedication serves as a beacon of hope for fellow athletes and supporters who share their vision for a transparent and inclusive wrestling fraternity
