PM Modi pitches for making Yoga a mass movement
New Delhi: Keen to ensure success of the first International Yoga Day on June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today pitched for making Yoga a mass movement, connecting people and strengthening the bonds of humanity.
In a post on ‘Facebook', he said the entire global community has come together in support of celebrating the first-ever International Day of Yoga on June 21.
“Now, that strong support has also turned into immense enthusiasm. I am seeing several people and organisations across the world are working towards making the first ever International Day of Yoga a memorable event,” Modi said.
In the run-up to the Yoga Day, the Prime Minister would be sharing a post daily, covering various aspects of Yoga, the PMO said.
The United Nations had in December last year declared June 21 as the International Yoga Day, with 177 countries voting in favour.
The proposal had been mooted by Modi during his first address to the UN General Assembly in September last year.
