Union Sports Minister and Olympian Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s #fitnesschallenge to Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Saina Nehwal seems to have got the ball rolling on the Internet. The former professional shooter posted a video of him doing push-ups, in order to weave the importance of staying fit into the lifestyle of India’s youth. While Kohli, Roshan and Nehwal promptly took up the minister’s challenge and further nominated others to keep the chain of awareness going, other ministers too took up the challenge without hesitation.
Among them are Kiren Rijiju (Union Minister of State for Home Affairs), Piyush Goyal (Minister of Railways, Coal and finance), Dr Harsh Vardhan (Ministry of Science & Technology, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Ministry of Earth Sciences), Yashodhara Raje Scindia (Minister for Commerce, Industries and Employment), Jayant Sinha (Minister of State for Civil Aviation), as well as other legislators.
This is Rathore’s video.
