Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi targeted BJP over the scuffle between Delhi Police and wrestlers. Rahul Gandhi said, on Thursday, that the the alleged misbehaviour by Delhi Police with protesting wrestlers is “shameful”. He added that the ‘Beti Bachao’ is only a ‘farce’. In fact, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has never shied away from torturing the daughters of India.
Posting the video of star women wrestlers Sakshi Malik and Vinesh Phogat, who were visibly distraught after a scuffle with the Delhi Police on Wednesday night, Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet that BJP has “never shied away from torturing the daughters of India.”
देश के खिलाड़ियों के साथ ऐसा बर्ताव बहुत ही शर्मनाक है।
‘बेटी बचाओ' बस ढोंग है! असल में भाजपा भारत की बेटियों पर अत्याचार करने से कभी पीछे नहीं हटी है। pic.twitter.com/TRgPyM8UbF

What happened at midnight ?
A scuffle broke out at Jantar Mantar between the protesting wrestlers and the Delhi Police when they were bringing in folding beds for their night stay and the on-duty police personnel stopped them. The wrestlers alleged that the police officers started misbehaving and even abused the women wrestlers. Talking to the media, Vinesh Phogat burst into tears and said that they want to kill us.
Wrestlers have opened a front against Wrestling Association President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh at Jantar Mantar since 23 April. The wrestlers have accused Brij Bhushan of sexual harassment and are demanding his arrest.
