Questioning the Government’s move to organise mass yoga programmes, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is running out of ideas and camouflaging his failures by “nautanki” (drama).
“Don’t understand the logic of mass yoga events by GOI? Modi running out of ideas and camouflaging his failures by such nautanki,” Singh said on twitter.
However, he said that while he recommended Yoga for good health, he failed to understand why it was being made a “religio-political” issue.
“Doing Yoga Dhyan Pranayam since 40 years. I strongly recommend for good health. Don’t understand why it is being made religio-political issue? “, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said in another tweet.
The BJP-led NDA government has planned a mega event on Rajpath to mark the ‘International Yoga Day’ on June 21.
However, the move has run into a controversy as some minority groups including the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AMPLB) have opposed compulsory yoga classes in schools, following which the government had to clarify yesterday that participation in June 21 events to mark International Yoga Day was not “compulsory”.
