International Yoga Day 2017: Political leaders participate across country

“When India and Pakistan cricket matches are held they not remain mere sporting events but go on to become a matter of pride for both nations

Ramdev also said that it was Prime Minister Indira Gandhi who began yoga as a public event through Acharya Dhirendra.

Ahead of the Intenational Yoga Day, Baba Ramdev while addressing the media stated that he wants to visit Pakistan to teach Yoga, but because of the political crisis he has not visited the nation.

On Tuesday, Ramdev had said that Shah lost 20 kilograms as a result of practicing yoga.

Hundreds of countries are uniting to mark the Yoga Day today.

Baba Ramdev has taken yoga to the drawing rooms of people across India through his regular demonstrations on TV.

"People who have assembled here defying weather are not only highlighting the importance of Yoga but Yoga mats too", he jokingly said. "People in the neighbouring country also want to learn yoga", he added. "Yoga is also a sport and it should be included under the sports category", said Ramdev. "Ramnath Kovind, who fought for the deprived and marginalised community, is a masterstroke by the BJP for the Presidential choice".

"I would appeal everyone to come out and perform Yoga on the Yoga day (June 21)". In a bid to create world record, as many as five lakh persons would perform yoga in Ahmedabad on July 21 on International Yoga day, which will be the biggest yoga conclave ever.

When asked how Masood could be brought back now when the NDA government had released him in 2000, Ramdev dodged the question and said, "This is a thing of the past".
