Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the Motion of Thanks for President's Address in Lok Sabha on Thursday mentioned Surya Namaskar. PM Modi hit back at Rahul Gandhi by saying that he will do more Surya Namaskar to beat the negativity around him. ''I will do Surya Namaskar for six months in order to bear the blows. This will make me stronger to face abuses. In any case, I have been abused so much for the last 2 decades. Their negativity hardly matters."
