After getting clean chit from the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) over doping charges, Olympics-qualified wrestler Narsingh Yadav met Prime Minister Narendra Modi today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the player with a Bronze medal finish in the World Championship last year, to win accolades for India and focus on a strong battle at the upcoming Rio Olympics without much tension. He also assured the player that no injustice will be done to him.
The Prime Minister met Narsingh Yadav at the Parliament House office after the BJP’s parliamentary meeting.
After the meeting Narsingh Yadav said that PM Narendra Modi asked the wrestler to be carefare and participate in the Olympics. The wrestler came under the scanner of NADA after he failed a dope test on June 25. Calling it a sabotage by the competitors, he said that this should not happen to any player, otherwise their interest in sports will go away.
The Indian contingent to Rio Olympics 2016 was accompanied by Wrestling Federation of India President Brijbhushan Sharan Singh during the meeting with Prime Minister.
Acquitted of the doping charges only yesterday, Narsingh Yadav will participate in the Rio Olympics 2016 representing India in the 74kg freestyle wrestling championship.
