NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today cheekily issued a fitness challenge, no, not to any of his party colleagues, but to Karnataka chief minister, the JD(S)'s HD Kumaraswamy, whom he and his party bitterly battled not long ago. And the Karnataka CM responded with an equally cheeky reply.
Kumaraswamy said that fitness is indeed very important and that he does work out, but that he's "more concerned" about the fitness and development of Karnataka.
"I am honored & thanks very much for d concern about my health I believe physical fitness is important for all&support d cause. Yoga-treadmill r part of my daily workout regime. Yet, I am more concerned about development fitness of my state&seek ur support for it," tweeted the chief minister's office.
About three weeks ago, Modi accepted a similar challenge from cricket captain Virat Kohli, and today, even as he posted a video of part of his fitness routine, he issued his own such challenge to Kumaraswamy, as well as TT champ Manika Batra and all IPS officers "especially those above 40".
"I am delighted to nominate the following for the #FitnessChallenge: Karnataka's CM Shri @hd_kumaraswamy. India's pride and among the highest medal winners for India in the 2018 CWG, @manikabatra_TT. The entire fraternity of brave IPS officers, especially those above 40," tweeted the PM bright and early this morning.
The part of his fitness routine that Modi filmed and posted on Twitter involves walking on a track inspired by nature's five elements.
"Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises," tweeted the PM.It all started on May 22 with Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore urging the country to take up a fitness challenge as part of the '#HumFitTohIndiaFit' campaign.
"Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media," tweeted Rathore, challenging Kohli, actor Hrithik Roshan, and badminton player Saina Nehwal.
Kohli accepted the challenge and posted a fitness video of his own, in which he's seen performing an exercise for the lower abdomen, one he called his "favourite core workout". In turn, he challenged his wife, actor Anushka Sharma, cricket icon Mahendra Singh Dhoni and PM Modi.
Since then, several ministers and BJP members have taken to Twitter to showcase their fitness routines.
