Narendra Modi nominates Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy for Fitness Challenge

It follows a trend of homemade motivational fitness videos from prominent Indians, including adored cricket captain Virat Kohli, trying to tackle obesity and poor health in the country of 1.25 billion.

PM Modi's one-and-a-half minute video comes almost a month after he accepted the fitness challenge given to him by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli. He passed the challenge on to Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, Commonwealth gold medallist Manika Batra and all the Indian Police Service (IPS) officers, especially those above the age of 40.

Here are moments from my morning exercises.

"This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating", PM Modi said before throwing the fitness challenge gauntlet to, among others, the Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy, who is the Karnataka chief minister. "I also practicebreathing exercises", he wrote.

"I am delighted to nominate the following for the #FitnessChallenge: Karnataka's CM H.D. Kumaraswamy".

Our PM has been supporting and promoting the importance of fitness since the start. "Yoga and treadmill are part of my daily workout regime", he said, asserting that he was "more concerned about the development fitness of my state".

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

Thereafter, he also posted two tweets appealing "every Indian to devote some part of the day towards fitness".

New Delhi: Narendra Modi, whose supporters boast of his physical prowess and indifference to sleep, has shared the secrets to his morning fitness regimen in a video where the Indian premier thrusts a staff, walks backwards and flexes over a boulder. India's pride and among the highest medal winners for India in the 2018 CWG, @manikabatra_TT.

"The entire fraternity of fearless IPS officers, especially those above 40". I thank him for participating in the #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge and reiterating the importance of a healthy mind in a healthy body!
