With the world celebrating International Yoga Day today, many of our politicians amongst thousands others took part in practicing Yoga. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was himself at Rajpath, along with a reported 37,000 others who took part in the Yoga programme on Sunday morning. Pictures of our leaders in one asana or another flooded Twitter. Along with the PM, Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Manohar Parrikar and Venkaiah Naidu were seen practicing Yoga on the day. Ram Madhav and Meenakshi Lekhi were seen too, as was Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal was at Rajpath too, and did mention that Yoga shouldn’t be politicised. There was less buzz in Patna though, as BJP President Amit Shah attended a Yoga camp, but desisted from joining in.
