  • WATCH: Kiren Rijiju, Rajyavardhan Rathore Set Fitness Goals With Workout Videos

It might be two months to go for the International Day of Yoga, but looks like the top ministers in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government have already started inspiring the country with fitness goals, and they’re leading by example.

 

Now, it’s no secret that Olympian Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore keeps a strict fitness regimen despite his hectic work schedule as minister of state for information and broadcasting, and now he seems to have inspired his colleagues too.

 

This sudden fitness furore started when Union home minister Kiren Rijiju shared a video Rathore working out to ‘Eye of the Tiger’, the Rocky soundtrack on April 19. Soon, the micro-blogging site was flooded with #fitnessgoal tweets. “While doing duty we’ve no time for physical fitness. But my Olympian colleague @Ra_THORe manages some time & gives me a tough challenge”, Rijiju had tweeted.

 
 

Sports minister Vijay Goel and railways minister Suresh Prabhu too applauded Rathore for his commitment to staying fit.

 

The former shooter responded to Rijiju’s tweet, saying, “Ha ha ha…despite your hectic schedule, YOU are beyond competition AND are an inspiration. @KirenRijiju #IAmNewIndia”.

 
 

Well, not one to take a compliment without justification apparently, a day later, the minister came up with his own video as he hit the gym, and tweeted out a 27-second video: “Young friends, stay away frm drugs, be fit. Let’s build @narendramodi ji’s #NewIndia dream. I took out 30 mins frm work 2 respond @Ra_THORe”.
