On her tweets in the favour of the central government, Indian boxer Vijender Singh has said, “Nadaan hai bachchi, seekh jaayegi, she is new to politics. The country is run by love, not by hatred and discrimination, and it’s important to gain the right knowledge and understanding of what’s right and wrong.”
Vijender has joined Indian National Congress in 2019. He said, “Hindu vs Muslim is as dangerous as Coronavirus”.
“Some people don’t want this. And to top it all, TV news channels create an uproar with the debates. That’s why I’ve stopped watching TV news. For me, Twitter is my source for the news and I only follow verified accounts.”
Vijender Singh is an Indian boxer who has won bronze medal in 2008 Beijing Olympics and in 2009 world championship. He has won silver medal in 2006 commonwealth games and 2014 commonwealth games.
He said on the spread of the coronavirus, “Jaan hai toh jahaan hai. We have to be safe first and prevent it from spreading. The Olympics will happen if not next year then later. But it will not have its charm like before due to the fear this pandemic has created. There might be a dip in the crowd as people would prefer to watch it online or on TV.”
Vijender is hoping everything to be fine and normal. He said, “Unemployment and hunger will create more havoc than coronavirus and we all need to fight this together by helping each other.”
Vijender was about to go for training to UK in May but it got cancelled due to the spread of the coronavirus, and he is spending time with his family. He is staying in Delhi with his sons Arbir and Amrik.
Vijender shared that how he is spending his time said, “I used to think that life is very simple and easy, but to do household chores and to stay at home for this long is not easy. I do make time for myself, read, play games and watch movies. I’m also doing conditioning workout, staying physically and mentally fit and motivated.”
