In a mock protest over International Yoga Day, the members of Youth Congress on Sunday did ‘yoga’ wearing the masks of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj pretending helping scam-tainted former IPL chief Lalit Modi.
They also pretended performing yoga at the Jantar Mantar wearing masks of Lalit Modi and yoga exponent Ramdev. However,the Youth Congress maintained that neither the party nor their members are against yoga. The party leaders said that this is the 54th event of Modi in power but the farmers of the country and poor people are standing "blindfolded".
The Youth Congress workers put out posters with caricature of Modi under the caption ‘Lalit aasan, mauj Modi ka yog shivir’. "Modi government is celebrating events while farmers are committing suicides and the poor are dying because of hunger," said Amrinder Singh Raja Brar,Youth Congress president.
"We have performed various "yoga aasans" to target the government, namely Lalitaasan, U-Turn aasan, suit-boot aasan, kaladhan vapasi aasan, zamin looto aasan, aatankwadi khush aasan, feku aasan and videsh yatra aasan,overtly exposing Modi’s pre-election promises of "Ache Din" and good governance to the people," said Brar.
