  On World Yoga Day, as the Prime Minister and his Union Cabinet were busy converting Rajpath to 'Yogpath', politicians in Tamil Nadu did not allow themselves to be left behind. After all, one of the political stalwarts from the state, Vijaykanth, is an ally of the BJP. Here some images from this morning.   Vijaykanth stretching it out at the Yoga session this morning.   Vijayakanth's wife Premalatha, DMDK Chief Vijaykanth and his brother-in-law Sudeesh Not wanting to feel left out, the DMK too put out pictures of their leaders performing yoga. Stalin's FB page released the picture this morning, quoting him and stating that he has been practising yoga for 20 years, and that it brings balance and positive energy to the individual. Stalin doing Yoga. Image from his FB page.   There was a picture Karunanidhi released too. The image, presumably an old one, was released with comments hailing suryanamaskar.     Unfortunately, there were no such images from either Poes Garden or Fort St. George. But if we know her well enough, Amma does not do yoga, she makes others do yoga. Take that, Modi.
