  • CM HD Kumaraswamy politely declines PM Modi's Fitness Challenge; says more worried about fitness of Karnataka

Narendra Modi passed the fitness challenge to none other than Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy and tennis player Monika Batra.

Kohli then accepted Rathore's challenged and nominated Prime Minister Modi. "#HumFitTohIndiaFit (sic)", Prime Minister Modi wrote on the micro-blogging site.

For days after being sworn in along with a deputy, G Parameswara of the Congress, the Chief Minister didn't have a cabinet because of a fierce tussle within the Congress for meaty portfolios.

The Karnataka CM on Monday had said that concerned over his health, his father and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda had asked someone from the Congress party to take up the top post in the coalition government. The advice was reportedly to assign portfolios at the soonest and not take any burden. The cricketer had accepted the challenge of Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who too had posted an exercise video.

One of Narendra Modi's most enduring images as prime minister has him performing yoga on Rajpath, New Delhi's main boulevard, along with hundreds of Indians behind him.


In the video that is more than a minute long, Mr. Modi is seen walking in stones, sand, grass, and water besides doing other free hand exercises.

Our PM has been supporting and promoting the importance of fitness since the start.

While posting the video this morning, Modi said, "Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash". He is also seen balancing himself while walking on a narrow, circular track. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. In the video, that is nearly two minutes long, the prime minister is seen practising several breathing exercises and some Yoga asanas.

That was the first International Yoga Day, June 21, 2015, a United Nations event that the Indian leader was instrumental in instituting.

Not just Kumaraswamy, PM also nominated the "CWG 2018 medal victor Manika Batra and entire fraternity of fearless IPS officers", especially above 40 years of age, he said.
