Dattu Bhokanal | Being a Maharashtrian, I was discriminated against and treated unfairly. Despite my ability to win an Olympic medal, I was suddenly expelled from the camp.
Manmad: Dattu Bhokanal, a rowing player who has been flying the flag of Maharashtra in national and international rowing, has once again come under discussion. Dattu Bhokanal has abruptly resigned from the army and has leveled several serious allegations against the federation. Dattu says that because he is from Maharashtra, he is being bullied by the federation.
Being a Maharashtrian, I was discriminated against and treated unfairly. Despite my ability to win an Olympic medal, I was suddenly expelled from the camp. Therefore, I could not participate in the qualifying competition for the Olympics, alleged Dattu Bhokanal. Therefore, Dattu Bhokanal has demanded that the Government of Maharashtra and the Central Government should take notice of this and give me justice.
Dattu Bhokanal was the only Indian to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics in rowing. Dattu Bhokanal hails from Talegaon Rohi, a small village in Chandwad taluka of Nashik. He has made India famous in the sport of sailing. Dattu won two gold medals at the 2014 National Sailing Championships. Dattu then won a silver medal in the single scull event at the 2015 Asian Sailing Championships in China. He has won many medals for India in rowing nationally and internationally.

Shining performance in the Asian Championships
