Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia on April 27 condemned PT Usha’s remark of being undisciplined to protesting wrestlers. Sakshi Malik said, “Being a woman athlete, she (PT Usha) isn’t listening to other women athletes. Where’s indiscipline here, we are sitting here peacefully…She herself cried in front of the media regarding her academy.” Bajrang Punia said, “We have waited for 3 years. Initially, we approached the committee but didn’t get justice. So we are here.” “Sports Minister sat with athletes only for a few minutes…at times we were intimidated in the meeting…” he added. Vinesh Phogat said, “If we are sitting on the road, we must have had some compulsion. Whether it is Sports Ministry or IOA no one listened to us, then we have come in front of the public that no one is listening to us. We ourselves considered PT Usha as an icon. I had also called him to share my pain but he did not pick up the phone. We have been waiting for three months.” “Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is having a committee for sexual harassment, instead of going to the streets they (protesting wrestlers) could have come to us earlier but they didn’t come to IOA. It isn’t good for Sports not only for wrestlers, but they should also have some discipline,” PT Usha said
