Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, president of the Wrestling Federation of India said, “The relationship between Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh has been very good since the beginning. Khashaba Jadhav, the son of Maharashtra, won a medal in the Olympics 61 years ago, but unfortunately the wrestlers from Maharashtra have fallen behind. The state government has taken the initiative to bring wrestling back to its glory days. It should be noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is encouraging girls to advance in all fields. Dipali Syed has demanded to start Maharashtra Kesari competition for women, it should be considered positively.
The prizes of Maharashtra Kesari Tournament were distributed by Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, President of Indian Wrestling Federation Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, Guardian Minister Chandrakant Patil, Minister Girish Mahajan. On this occasion, President of Maharashtra State Kustigir Sangh, MP Ramdas Tadas, Srirang Barane, MLA Bhimrao Tapkir, Madhuri Misal, former MP Ashok Mohol, actress Dipali Syed and many dignitaries from the political and wrestling fields were present.
