Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and leader of the Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav, took a dig at the current Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath. Yadav shared a video on Twitter on Friday that showed Yogi struggling with performing yoga asanas. In an attempt to make fun of Yogi, Yadav captioned the video as “Enjoy Yoga.”
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath participated in a yoga session on June 21 in Gorakhpur. The idea of International Yoga Day was first introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Since then, yoga has gained immense popularity worldwide for its ability to improve flexibility, strength, balance, and overall fitness.
During a public meeting in the Sitab Diara area of Ballia district, Yogi Adityanath highlighted the global recognition of India’s yoga tradition. He mentioned that 180 countries were expressing their appreciation for this ancient practice on International Yoga Day. Yogi Adityanath also mentioned that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was leading a yoga event at the United Nations in commemoration of the day.
Yogi Adityanath, accompanied by Harivansh, the deputy chairperson of Rajya Sabha, visited Sitab Diara, the village of Loknayak Jai Prakash Narayan. During his visit, Yogi inaugurated and laid the foundation stones for 144 development projects worth over Rs 3,638 crore. He emphasized that Sitab Diara, previously considered cursed due to its location at the confluence of rivers Ganga and Sarayu, would now benefit from the waterway between Haldia and Varanasi.
