‘Main galat ko galat…’: Boxer and ex-Congress leader Vijender Singh on wrestlers protest after joining BJP

Vijender Singh, India's renowned Olympic medalist in boxing, made headlines by joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in preparation for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections in 2024. Formerly associated with the Congress party, Singh's decision marks a significant shift in his political allegiance. In the previous Lok Sabha elections, he contested from the South Delhi constituency under the Congress banner but faced defeat. Addressing questions regarding his stance on pertinent issues, Singh reiterated his commitment to denouncing wrongdoings and acknowledging righteousness.

In his words, "Main galat ko galat kahung, sahi ko sahi" (I will call wrong, what's wrong, right what is right). He expressed his eagerness to contribute to the welfare of sports players under the BJP's umbrella. Singh emphasized the importance of resolving athletes' concerns through dialogue and mediation, suggesting that his affiliation with the BJP would enable him to assist athletes more effectively. He lauded the BJP's efforts towards national development and voiced his aspiration to serve the nation and its people by joining the party. There were anticipations that Singh might contest the upcoming elections from Mathura on a Congress ticket, challenging the incumbent MP Hema Malini. Coming from the Jat community, known for its political influence in Haryana, Singh's potential candidacy could have stirred interesting dynamics in the electoral landscape. Notably, Singh's decision to join the BJP came shortly after he shared a tweet by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, which took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

This timing added intrigue to his political move, leaving observers speculating about his motivations. Singh formalized his entry into the BJP at an event in New Delhi, attended by the party's National General Secretary Vinod Tawde. His decision to switch parties is part of a broader trend where several Congress leaders have shifted allegiance to the BJP, causing notable disruptions within the Congress ranks. Rahul Gandhi, addressing the public during the conclusion of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, attributed these departures to apprehensions about the BJP's growing influence. Overall, Vijender Singh's decision to join the BJP signals a significant development in India's political landscape, with potential implications for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. His transition underscores the fluidity of Indian politics and the strategic calculations made by political actors in pursuit of their objectives.
