BJP lawmakers have recommended cow urine and cow dung for fighting the Covid-19 virus. One top saffron leader has said nothing will happen to India because this is land of 33 million Gods. Now PM Narendra Modi has asked people to practice Yoga during the 21-day lockdown.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday shared links of yoga videos from his Twitter handle and urged the people to pratice it.
This comes a day after the prime minister was asked about his fitness during his radio address Mann ki Baat. The yoga videos are available in different languages for people to follow them and practice easily.
“During yesterday’s Mann ki Baat, someone asked me about my fitness routine during this time. Hence, thought of sharing these Yoga videos. I hope you also begin practising Yoga regularly,” PM Modi tweeted out.
Stressing on the importance of yoga, the prime minister wrote, “I am neither a fitness expert nor a medical expert. Practising Yoga has been an integral part of my life for many years and I have found it beneficial.”
He also encouraged Indians to share fitness regimes that they are implementing during the lockdown. “I am sure many of you also have other ways of remaining fit, which you also must share with others,” his tweet read.
No one would doubt yoga is indeed beneficial .
But when millions of poor Indians, desperate to reach home after the sudden lockdown, are desperate for food, water and transport , is it the right time to ask the nation to do Yoga and make a big deal out of it. The poor is already worried about loosing jobs, income , livelihood. Asking them to do yoga is .. you guess what..
