Nitish advises Amit Shah to practise yoga, stay fit


Nitish Kumar

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today advised BJP president Amit Shah to silently practise yoga regularly at home to stay fit. He said he read in newspapers that Shah would do yoga in Patna on the occasion of International Yoga day on June 21. “Has he seen his body whether it is suitable to do yoga?” Kumar asked, and advised him to “practise yoga silently at home everyday to stay fit. This will bring internal change in him too.”

“Yoga is very useful and should be practised sincerely at home for good health. But BJP is indulging in show off in the name of yoga which is triggering dispute,” Kumar said. Kumar said he has been practising yoga regularly at home for years but had never made a publicity of it.

Shah’s presence in Patna on International Yoga Day on June 21 is considered as BJP’s efforts to derive political mileage ahead of the Bihar Assembly polls later this year.
