PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday led the second International Yoga Day Celebrations in Chandigarh while 57 other union ministers did the same in other parts of the country.

June 21 was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2014. Over 190 countries, including 40 Islamic nations, supported the move to have a special day for yoga.

Following this, the first International Yoga Day was observed across the world on June 21 last year with Modi performing yoga along with 36,000 people at the Delhi's historic Rajpath.
