New Delhi: India's Olympic medal winner Yogeshwar Dutt has been severely criticised by Twitterati for opposing Salman Khan's appointment as Goodwill Ambassador of Indian contingent for upcoming Rio Olympics.
Dutt, who is known to express his patriotic feelings through Twitter, had posted this soon after the Bollywood actor was appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador.
PT Usha,Milkha Singh jaise bade sports star hai jinhone kathin samay me desh ke liye mehnat ki. Khel ke kshetra me Es ambassador ne Kya kiya

However, his tweet didn't go too well with Salman fans, who asked the wrestler to focus on the upcoming Olympics.
@DuttYogi Tu Sirf Khel Par Dhyan De, Ya Phr Politics Me Aane Ka Man Hai Tera?
Salman Bhai is a Real Human Being Un Se Jyada Madadgar Koi Nhi
