Guess who is giving us fitness goals and inspiring us to lead a happy and healthy life? Two ministers from the Narendra Modi government. Wait, what? Yeah, a rare sight in Indian polity where we associate ministers and party leaders to be paunchy, flabby and fat, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiu and Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore are into intense workout regime.
On Wednesday, Kiren Rijiju posted a 37-second long clip of his colleague Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore working out in a gym. In the video, the former Olympic silver medallist is seen doing push-ups on an exercise ball. Soon after, Twitter was abuzz with tweets tagged with #FitnessGoals. Vijay Goel tweeted on the video calling him: "Our very own Rocky Balboa."
He captioned the video: "While doing duty we've no time for physical fitness. But my Olympian colleague...gives me a tough challenge."

India should spend more on open gyms & playgrounds. In Delhi open parks used only for marriage tents— sanj kaps (@sanjkaps) April 19, 2017
