WFI Election: Brijbhushan Sharan Singh and his son will not be able to vote in the wrestling association elections, son-in-law’s name in the list


New Delhi: Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and his son Karan are not part of the voter list for the upcoming Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) elections, but it is surprising that the list includes members who are not associated with the existing state units. As per the constitution of WFI, only the members of the executive committee of the states can be included in the voter list in the election. According to the WFI constitution, ‘the recognized unit may nominate only a member of its executive committee for representation in the election.

Anita Sheoran, who was included in the list of witnesses in the sexual harassment case against Brij Bhushan, has been included as the representative of Odisha in the elections to be held on August 12. Commonwealth Games 2010 gold medalist Anita, 38, hails from Haryana and works in the state police. Thus Prem Chand Lochab’s name is included as the representative of Gujarat when he is actually the secretary of the Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB). Also, in a surprising decision of the ad-hoc panel, after giving membership to Assam, the state has been given voting rights.

A WFI source said, “How can an ad-hoc panel give membership to a state. This decision is taken in the General Council. It is difficult to understand how this decision was taken. “It is a clear violation of the constitution of the WFI that such people who are not part of the state institutions have been nominated and approved in the voter list,” the source said.

Uttar Pradesh union president Brij Bhushan and his son Karan, vice-president of the state union, are not part of the election, but Vishal Singh, son-in-law of the outgoing WFI president, will represent Bihar in the elections. Maharashtra and Tripura will not have any representative in the election. The returning officer rejected the claims of both the factions in Maharashtra, while Tripura has been derecognized since 2016. Two delegates from each state unit will be allowed to vote.

Brij Bhushan, MP from Kaiserganj, Uttar Pradesh, is facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment and is currently out on bail. He cannot contest elections as he has completed 12 years as an office bearer. According to the National Sports Code, the tenure of any office bearer cannot exceed 12 years. Now Uttar Pradesh will be represented by Prem Kumar Mishra and Sanjay Singh.
