Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Thursday slammed Central government after United World Wrestling (UWW) suspended Wrestling Federation of India (WFI).
Taking to X (formerly Twitter), West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, "I am shocked to learn that The United World Wrestling (UWW) has suspended the Wrestling Federation of India. It is a matter of grave embarrassment for the whole nation. Central government has let down our wrestlers by being shamefully arrogant and by being cavalier & dismissive towards the plight of our wrestler sisters."
"Centre and BJP have kept on harassing our indomitable sisters with misogyny and crude male chauvinism. India should stand against and punish those who are left with no moral compass and who can not stand up for the dignity of the Nation's fighting daughters. The day of reckoning is not too far," CM Banerjee continued.
