    Prime Minister, I want to ask you, are we traitors?: Vinesh

    For each and every daughter of the nation, self respect is of foremost importance: Rahul Gandhi

    Vinesh Phoghat placed her Khel Ratna and Arjuna Awards on the Kartavya Path in New Delhi

Indian woman wrestler Vinesh Phoghat placed her Khel Ratna and Arjuna Awards on the Kartavya Path in New Delhi after she was stopped from entering the Prime Minister’s office wherein she intended to return it. Earlier she had written a letter to Prime Minister Modi after Sanjay Singh, believed to be ex-Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) President Brij Bhushan Singh’s confidante, won the elections and was appointed as the President of the WFI.

Disappointed with this outcome with the fear that it may have a bearing on the legal proceedings pertaining to the sexual harassment charges levied on Brij Bhushan Singh, Vinesh wrote, “Sir, our medals and awards are being valued at 15 rupees, but these medals are more precious to us than our lives. When we won medals for the country, the whole nation celebrated us with pride. Now, when we raise our voices for justice, we’re being called traitors. Prime Minister, I want to ask you, are we traitors?”     

Indian National Congress (INC) leader Rahul Gandhi reacted to this development through a post on the microblogging site X (formerly known as Twitter). “For each and every daughter of the nation, self respect is of foremost importance. Any medal or recognition comes later in the order of significance. Today, has the cost of ‘political gains’ derived from a declared ‘strongman’ become greater than the tears of these brave daughters? The prime minister is the guardian of the nation, witnessing such insensitivity causes anguish,” his post mentioned.
