Protesting wrestlers Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik reached the residence of Union Sports Minister Anurag Singh Thakur on Wednesday.
Sakshi had come with her Arjuna awardee husband Satyavrat Kadian. Olympian Vinesh Phogat was missing, though her husband Somveer Rathi was seen entering the minister’s residence.
The government has invited the protesting wrestlers for the second time after meeting Home Minister Amit Shah.
In January too, the wrestlers had met Anurag Thakur at his residence and called off their protest after forming a committee. At that time former wrestler and BJP leader Babita Phogat played the role of mediator.
Earlier on Wednesday, while talking to IANS, Sakshi Malik said, we will keep everything open. We will not take any decision behind closed doors. We will discuss the proposal given by the government with our seniors and supporters and when everyone gives their opinion that the proposal is right then only we will agree.
