Women's mahapanchayats will be set up outside the new Parliament, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate the structure on May 28


Delhi, India: On a day their cutoff time to capture Wrestling League of India's (WFI) sidelined president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh lapsed, the fighting grapplers, drove by Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat and Sakshi Malik, on Sunday reported that a ladies 'mahapanchayat' will be held external the new Parliament working here, which will be initiated by State head Narendra Modi on May 28.

The wrestlers do not have permission from the police to hold a mahapanchayat of this kind, which could disrupt law and order in a highly sensitive security zone.

The "Sarv Khap Panchayat," which was held on Sunday in Maham town in the Rohtak district of Haryana and was attended by Rio Olympics bronze medalist Malik, who was representing the protesting wrestlers, made the decision. Rakesh Tikait, the leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), was also present at the gathering.

The Khaps (people group courts) which gave a call for mahapanchayat outside Parliament are known as 'maham chaubisi', which is a bunch of 24 towns in Rohtak region. Ranchers and agents of Khaps from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana went to the gathering in Rohtak.

It was likewise settled during the get-together to do a candlelight walk to India Entryway on May 23 to check one-month of the grapplers' current demonstration against Singh's capture at Jantar Mantar. The wrestlers do not have permission from the police to break up the march.

During his time as president of the WFI, Singh is accused of sexually abusing seven female wrestlers, including a minor.

"We had left this call on the khap panchayat to plan the next move. We will adhere to the advice of our elders and well-wishers. We had given the government until May 21 to arrest Brij Bhushan, but that date has passed. It is now time to escalate this agitation. A ladies mahapanchayat will be held external the new Parliament on the day PM Modi will initiate it. On that day, all of our female wrestlers who are protesting will leave Jantar Mantar and join the mahapanchayat. We expect ladies from the nation over to arrive at New Delhi on May 28 to help grapplers in their battle for equity," Tokyo Olympics bronze medallist, Bajrang, told TOI on Sunday.

Bajrang also stated that, due to the fact that the majority of wrestlers are outside practicing and are not following their diets, the chances of protesting wrestlers participating in the upcoming Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, should be considered to be almost nonexistent.

"We don't figure we would have the option to take part at the Asiad. We cannot even compete in Hangzhou, let alone win the selection trials, given our current mental and physical state. We haven't trained in months and aren't sticking to our diet plan. The race for the Asiad is over for us. He stated, "This battle is a lot bigger than winning a medal at the Asiad or the Olympics."
