PM Modis latest video in Kaala style becomes viral

"The entire fraternity of courageous IPS officers, especially those above 40", he wrote on his twitter handle.

The video was in response to the #HumFitTohIndiaFit ("India's fit if we are fit") challenge posed to him on May 23 by cricketer Virat Kohli. "I also practice breathing exercises (sic)".

"Dear Narendra Modiji, I am honoured and thank you very much for the concern about my health".

The prime minister's one-and-a-half minute video comes almost a month after he accepted the fitness challenge thrown by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli.

On Twitter, Modi said he also walks "on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash".

Death Stranding just keeps on piling the questions, discomfort
The goal of the main character is not yet clear, but he appears to be saving other folks who were trapped by unknown creatures. There's also a lot of walking across different kinds of terrains carrying odd sorts of packages.

If the Catalan club signed him now, it would cost them €200 million but if they wait until the turn of the month, it will be halved to €100 million.

"I am delighted to nominate the following for the #FitnessChallenge: Karnataka's CM Shri @hd_kumaraswamy". Yoga-treadmill are part of my daily workout regime.

Replying to the "cheeky" tweet by Modi, Karnataka CM in a way refused to post his exercise video on social media and instead told the PM that he was "more concerned about the development fitness of my state".

The Prime Minister said, "Here are moments from my morning exercises". And although the pearls of its practice have been around all this time, we gotta give it to Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and his fitness challenge #HumFitTohIndiaFit to give it the modern day spin it needed! The video shows him meditating, walking on a track inspired by five elements of nature, and doing yoga exercises. India's pride and among the highest medal winners for India in the 2018 CWG, Manika Batra.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister appealed "to every Indian" to devote some part of the day towards fitness. Mr Kumaraswamy was sworn in as Chief Minister on May 24, after PM Modi's BJP, which failed to win an outright majority, couldn't get the numbers to pass a floor test.
