Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia reached Haridwar today to float medals in the Ganga in protest against the harassment of women players. But Shri Ganga Sabha stopped him from immersing the medal at Harki Paidi. Shri Ganga Sabha President Nitin Gautam has said that Harki Paidi is the holy pilgrimage place of Sanatan. Wrestlers take a bath. Do charitable work. But the medal will not be allowed to be immersed. Harki Paidi will not be allowed to become a political arena.
Wrestlers protest: Players cried a lot with medals in their hands on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar, people also got emotional, photos
Nitin Gautam has issued a statement objecting to the medal immersion of the wrestlers. Condemning it, it has been said that Shri Ganga Sabha boycotts this act of wrestlers. Harki Paidi is the area of faith and bone immersion of devotees, not medal immersion. Ganga ji flows everywhere in Haridwar. Wrestlers can leave Harki Pedi and do their work elsewhere. Medal immersion will not be allowed to maintain the dignity of the pilgrimage.
It is said that on Tuesday, on Ganga Dussehra, lakhs of devotees have reached Harki Paidi and nearby Ganga Ghats to take bath. There are many devotees at Harki Paidi during the evening aarti. In such a situation, due to the stampede due to the wrestlers, a big accident can happen. The chairman said that the police administration should stop the wrestlers from the point of view of the safety of the devotees.
Wrestler returned after convincing Naresh Tikait
National spokesperson of Bharatiya Kisan Union Tikait, Naresh Tikait reached the spot to meet the wrestlers. He explained to the wrestlers for a long time. He assured the wrestlers that he would hold talks to get justice for the wrestlers. After obeying Naresh Tikait, the wrestlers returned to Delhi after about two and a half hours.
