Brijbhushan seems to be in trouble

Former President of Wrestling Federation of India and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh is now playing a two-way game. They are threatening the ruling BJP and also praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. He showed his strength by holding a public meeting in Gonda on Sunday and said that he will contest the next Lok Sabha elections. By the way, his history tells that he is also very popular in his field, and also adept at changing sides. He became the Lok Sabha MP from Gonda in 1991 for the first time from BJP. Then there was Kalyan Singh’s government in Uttar Pradesh.

When the Babri Masjid was demolished in Ayodhya, Brij Bhushan was leading the kar sevaks. He also openly accepted that he had a role in the demolition of the Babri Masjid. But, despite the party (BJP) whip in the year 2008, he changed sides to save the Manmohan Singh government at the Centre. The next year he became an MP on a Samajwadi Party ticket. It is said that he was accused of having links with mafia don Dawood and he sided with the Manmohan Singh government to escape the investigation. The finger was also pointed at him in the murder case of BJP MLA Ghanshyam Shukla.

Brij Bhushan is also known as a wrestler in his field and in student life he was the president of the wrestling association of his college Saket Mahavidyalaya. But right now the way international women wrestlers have opened a front against them, they are seen in trouble. In the case of sexual misconduct with female wrestlers, the Delhi Police has filed a charge sheet against them. By the way, it would have been better if he himself would have got ready for the investigation after the allegations were made. But when the government disbanded the wrestling association itself, he himself had to withdraw. Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has been the President of Indian Wrestling Federation for the last 12 years.

Despite the demands of famous wrestlers like Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia, their resignation was not taken. Not only this, he was not arrested even after the FIR was registered. Brij Bhushan Singh was removed from the Wrestling Federation when the UP civic elections were over and their results also came. Wrestling Federation of India will constitute its new executive within 45 days after dissolving the executive committee of the wrestling federation and only then the new president will be elected. Amidst all this, Brijbhushan Sharan Singh tried to give a message by holding a rally in Gonda that his popularity is intact.

This popularity of Brijbhushan Singh in Gonda, Balrampur, Ayodhya and Bahraich of Uttar Pradesh gives him so much power due to which he is unbeatable despite being surrounded by allegations. The reason for his popularity in his field is that he can do anything for his colleagues. He had accepted this in front of a media channel, that he had committed the first murder of his life for a friend of his. Even after this, no government had the courage to take any action against them. Many governments have come and gone in the Center and Uttar Pradesh, but Brij Bhushan remained the same. Perhaps this is the reason why no action has ever been taken against them.

But this is the first time that Brij Bhushan is feeling helpless. Not because they were afraid of the wrestlers protesting, because even though the wrestlers protesting are of international level or have brought medals in the Olympic Games, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh kept on giving turkey-by-turkey answers to everything. They made this whole incident a battle of Haryana vs Uttar Pradesh. Whereas in both the states there is only BJP government. He was really worried when the Supreme Court intervened and the central government dissolved the executive body of the entire wrestling federation to remove him. The post on which he had stood firm for the last 12 years was suddenly snatched from him. That’s why they have realized that if the allegations are proved then they can get trapped.

Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah in his public rally on Sunday and bet on his popularity, but he knows that if the investigation into the allegations leveled by the wrestlers starts, the fire will go far. It should be noted that cases of sexual misconduct are such that they destroy the public image of any leader. Even if he wins the election on the ticket of a winning party, it is very difficult to win without a party. This is the mood of the Indian voter. That’s why the leader tries that no allegation like sexual misconduct should be leveled against him. The matter of allegations like murder, robbery is different, in which the decision comes only after the completion of the investigation. But, cases like sexual misconduct or molestation are image sensitive matters in public. It is not easy for the government to save the leaders when they get entangled in such matters.

In the first term of the Modi government, well-known journalist MJ Akbar, who was the Minister of State for External Affairs at that time, was involved in a case of ‘Me Too’ and had to resign. While he was counted among the capable ministers of the Modi government. The case of sexual misconduct against him was also years old. Whether the allegation was confirmed or not, but Akbar had to lose the chair. Perhaps this is the reason why Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh held a public meeting in Gonda on Sunday. Although the purpose of the gathering was told to celebrate the completion of nine years of the Modi government, but the way Brij Bhushan gave his speech there, it seemed that he was showing the attitude of both loyalty and rebellion. However, he forgets that the way the wrestlers have opened a front against him with full vigor, and the way the farmers of Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh are gathering in their support, in that environment, the government She would not want the anger of the people around Delhi to flourish to save an MP.
