Prime Minister’s Fitness Challenge

Published on June 13th, 2018

Tagged by Virat Kohli in his #FitnessChallenge video, today Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted a video of his morning exercises and passed on the challenge to Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, Commonwealth medalist Manika Batra and 40-plus Indian Police Service (IPS) officers.

The video shows him meditating, walking on a track inspired by five elements of nature, and doing yoga exercises, on what appears to be the lawns of his 7, Lok Kalyan Marg residence.

Karnataka CM H D Kumaraswamy accepted the challenge but in a sardonic reply to the Prime Minister retorted that he is more concerned about the fitness of his state and his state would need the centre’s cooperation.

PM Modi had also tweeted: “Here are my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature – Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises. #HumFitTohIndiaFit”.

The prime minister’s one-and-a-half minute video comes nearly a month after he accepted the fitness challenge thrown by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli.

Modi had then replied on Twitter that he will soon upload his fitness video. “Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon,” the PM had written in May in reply to Kohli’s challenge.

As the fourth International Yoga Day will be celebrated on June 21, PM Modi has been sharing his love for yoga on social media.

In 2015, India created two world records on International Yoga Day when PM Modi led the participants at Rajpath in Delhi and recorded the largest yoga class with 35,985 people.


FYI, the fitness challenge was started by Union Minister Raghavendra Rathore.
