It is the season of challenges thrown at each other by politicians, be it political challenges or social ones. The fit India challenge is making the rounds on the Internet with celebrities sharing their workout videos captioned #humfittohindiafit and tagging other celebrities to do the same.
Recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi was challenged by star-cricketer Virat Kohli to share his workout video on social media to which the Prime Minister posted a two-minute video of his workout on his official social media pages. Surprisingly he challenged Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy to share his fitness regime.
The Kannada CM replied wittily that he was more concerned about the fitness of his state than his own. It is unknown why the PM challenged Kumaraswamy out of everyone. But it was a surprise when the Karnataka CM attacked the PM back in a subtle way and yet making his point.
I am delighted to nominate the following for the #FitnessChallenge:
Karnataka’s CM Shri @hd_kumaraswamy.
India’s pride and among the highest medal winners for India in the 2018 CWG, @manikabatra_TT.
The entire fraternity of brave IPS officers, especially those above 40.
