Amid the ongoing talks to resolve wrestlers` issues, grappler Sakshi Malik on Saturday said they will not participate in Asian Games unless the matter is completely resolved. Talking to reporters in Sonipat, Malik said that no one understands what the wrestlers are going through mentally each passing day.
The 30-year old reached Sonipat to attend the Mahapanchayat to decide on the future course of action for wrestlers, who have been demanding the resignation of outgoing Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Singh over allegations of sexual harassment.
"We will participate in Asian Games only when all these issues will be resolved. You can`t understand how mentally exhausting this is and what we are going through everyday, " Sakshi said.

Sakshi`s comments have come at a time when trials for the Asiad are scheduled to take place in the ongoing month. All the wrestlers, including those involved in the protest, need to compete at trials and earn their place in the India team for the Asian Games, which will be held in Hangzhou, China from September 23 to October 8, 2023.
Earlier on Wednesday, Sakshi along with Bajrang Punia and others had met Union Sports Minister Anuarag Thakur at his home and said that the government has asked for time till June 15 for the police investigation to complete.
"The government has asked for time till June 15 for the police investigation to complete. It has agreed on most of our proposals related to wrestling. Now, we will keep these proposals in front of the farmers` unions, women`s unions, our seniors and khap panchayats. So, we won`t have any protest till June 15 but our `movement` against the WFI chief will continue," Sakshi had told IANS.
