MPCC criticises BJP govt for planning Yoga Day on Sunday

PTI June 20, 2015 16:57 IST

Aizawl:  Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) today slammed the BJP government at the Centre for its decision to observe the first International Yoga Day on Sunday, which is the holy day for Christians.  

David M Thangliana, Secretary of the MPCC's Media department, in a statement alleged that the BJP did not want the vision of the freedom fighters to make India a garden where different flowers bloom but wanted only a particular flower to bloom in the country.

The decision to observe International Yoga Day was a conspiracy to suppress religions other than Hinduism, the statement added.

Meanwhile, Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee (MKHC), a conglomerate of leaders of 14 major churches, has appealed to the Christians not to observe the International Yoga Day.
