Watch Narendra Modi's workout video

CM HD Kumaraswamy politely declines PM Modi's Fitness Challenge; says more worried about fitness of Karnataka

His video of him crunching push-ups in work attire not only urged people but also motivated them to post their own workout regimes and hand the baton to others including Virat Kohli and Hrithik Roshan.

Mr Kumaraswamy's reply came soon after.

After the PM posted his #FitnessChallenge video, social media erupted with multiple views-some lauded Modi for inspiring India to be healthy, others asked him to work on the "fitness" of the economy and the country in general, and a few fun-loving ones simply cracked some hilarious jokes over challenges and overcoming them in hard times.

The fitness challenge (#HumFitTohIndiaFit) started by Union minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, is still a trend in India and recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi accepted this challenge. The advice was reportedly to assign portfolios at the soonest and not take any burden. Accepting his challenge, Modi shared a video.

Responding to the fitness challenge from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today said he was more concerned about "developing fitness" of the state and sought his support for it.

Del Potro, the US Open victor in 2009, is playing the tournament for only the second time since 2012 after a spate of injuries. He required two more opportunities before taking the game that lasted nearly nine minutes. "We are always very competitive".

In the one-and-a-half minute video, PM can be seen wearing a black tracksuit, walking on a track created around a tree, doing stretching exercise and sitting on a rock for meditation.

He even divulged that he does yoga amidst nature and its five elements- Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash to keep healthy and fit.

.

He also nominated Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy for the challenge, but didn't get the response he may have expected. As Modi rightly described in his tweet, it was "extremely refreshing and rejuvenating" to see the head of the country doing some breathing exercises amid greenery and chirping birds in an exquisitely shot video.

Not just Kumaraswamy, PM also nominated the "CWG 2018 medal victor Manika Batra and entire fraternity of fearless IPS officers", especially above 40 years of age, he said. "I also practise breathing exercises".

I believe physical fitness is imptnt for all&support d cause. India's pride and among the highest medal winners for India in the 2018 CWG, Manika Batra.

"I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by @ra_THORe sir".
