According to a government statement, Modi joined approximately 30,000 participants in a mass Yoga demonstration.
Addressing the gathering at the Capitol Complex, the Prime Minister said that today, people in all parts of the country have connected with Yoga.
He said that the world has come forward to support the idea of International Day of Yoga. He added that all sections of society too, have come together in this endeavour.
Modi said that the International Day of Yoga is a day linked to good health, and it has become a mass movement.
He said that Yoga is not about what one will get, but it is about what one can give up. He said that with zero budget, Yoga provides health assurance, and does not discriminate between rich and poor.
The Prime Minister called for focus in the next one year, on how to mitigate diabetes through Yoga.
He said that to honour those who are working to popularize Yoga, two awards will be instituted, one at the national level, and the other at the international level.
