Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday appealed to citizens to make yoga an integral part of their daily lives.


Speaking at an event in the Marine Drive area here to mark the 10th International Day of Yoga, Shinde said “Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Baba Ramdev have popularised yoga worldwide”.
“Citizens must make yoga an integral part of their daily lives. Everyone must practise it daily, and not just one day,” he said.
Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and civic commissioner Bhushan Gagrani also attended the event, organised by BJP leader Shaina NC.
Later, Shinde addressed the staff and bureaucrats at Mantralaya and joined them along with Fadnavis in performing yoga.
Doing yoga daily will improve the efficiency of the bureaucrats and others working at the headquarters of the Maharashtra government and they can serve citizens better, he said, adding that yoga is the need of the hour for keeping one fit and healthy.

The United Nations General Assembly, heeding a call by Prime Minister Modi, declared in December 2014 to observe June 21 every year as the International Day of Yoga.
