Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy rejects PM Modi’s fitness challenge, see his reply

SNS | New Delhi |

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday posted his fitness video on Twitter which showed him meditating, walking on a track inspired by five elements of nature, and doing yoga.

PM Modi took to Twitter and passed on the fitness challenge to Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.

This fitness challenge on Twitter has gained immense popularity ever since Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore threw the first challenge. From Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli to megastar Amitabh Bachchan, many celebrities and common men have accepted the challenge so far and shared their regime on social media.

It seems, however, the Karnataka CM is not every impressed with the idea, as he politely refused to take up the challenge thrown to him by the PM.

In response to PM Modi’s tweet, Kumaraswamy wrote about his own personal exercise regime and said he was more concerned about the “fitness of my state”. He even asked Modi to help him with that.

“Dear @narendramodi ji

I am honoured& thankU very much for d concern about my health

I believe physical fitness is imptnt for all&support d cause. Yoga-treadmill r part of my daily workout regime.

Yet, I am more concerned about devlpment fitness of my state&seek ur support for it,” he tweeted.

In his tweet, the Prime Minister also passed on the fitness challenge to table tennis player Manika Batra and IPS officers, especially those above 40 years of age.

PM Modi’s one-and-a-half minute video comes nearly a month after he accepted the fitness challenge given to him by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli.

PM Modi had then said on Twitter that he will soon upload his fitness video.

“Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon,” the PM had tweeted in May in reply to Kohli’s challenge.

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. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises.”

Wearing a black attire, PM Modi is seen walking on a track created around a tree, doing stretching exercise and sitting on a rock for meditation.

He is also seen balancing himself while walking on a narrow, circular track.
