Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday expressed her best wishes to grappler Ravi Kumar Dahiya as he stormed into the finals of the men’s freestyle 57kg category at the Tokyo Olympics.

In a tweet, she said the wrestler had made the country proud.

“All the best Ravi Kumar Dahiya! India is cheering for you. You have made us all very proud,” she said.

Dahiya stormed into the finals of the men’s freestyle 57kg category at the Tokyo Olympics after defeating Kazakhstan’s Nurislam Sanayev in the semi-finals.

Dahiya will now contest the finals on Thursday. He is the first Indian wrestler to enter the final since Sushil Kumar in 2012.
