International Yoga Day: Union Ministers Amit Shah, Nitin Gadkari, and Rajnath Singh on Friday performed Yoga and spread awareness of keeping up good health. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also performed Yoga in Srinagar and said the world sees yoga as a powerful agent for global good as it helps people live in the present without carrying the baggage of the past.

Amit Shah

This Yoga Day holds special significance because it is the 10th edition. After Narendra Modi became the prime minister in 2014, he addressed the UN general assembly and proposed that June 21 should be observed as Yoga Day. His proposal was eventually accepted after over 170 nations agreed to that proposal.

Rajnath Singh

On this International Yoga Day, my only wish is that like all of you soldiers, taking inspiration from you, every person should imbibe the power of yoga within themselves. On this Yoga Day, I also pray to God that we all adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Nitin Gadkari

“People are enthusiastically participating in today's event. If we do yoga every day, we won’t ever need to take any medicines,” says Union Minister Nitin Gadkari 

 S Jaishankar

“Today, I was very happy to see so many diplomats, ambassadors, and colleagues from foreign ministry join us at the yoga session,” says External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar at a yoga event in Delhi.

“It is a moment to celebrate. We do yoga every day but to celebrate together and do yoga in a coordinated manner gives a different kind of feeling,” says Union Minister Kiren Rijiju

Om Birla

“I congratulate everyone on this day. Yoga is being practiced in the entire world today. It’s a part of our daily routine,” says BJP leader and former Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
