NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi,today tweeted a video of his morning exercises after being tagged by Virat Kohli in his #FitnessChallenge video, and passed on the challenge to Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, Commonwealth medalist Manika Batra and 40-plus Indian Police Service (IPS) officers.
The choice of Mr Kumaraswamy, who recently stymied the BJP’s attempts to form a government in fractured Karnataka by forming an alliance with the Congress, may generate some political buzz. The Janata Dal Secular-Congress tie-up has inspired opposition parties to attempt a joint fight to take on the BJP in the 2019 national elections.
In the video, PM Modi is seen doing a variety of Yoga exercises, including pranayam, on what appears to be the lawns of his 7, Lok Kalyan Marg residence.Mr Kumaraswamy tweeted soon after, but used his response to make a larger point – that 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”
