The video is a response to sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s #FitnessChallenge. Rathore’s #FitnessChallenge or #HumFitTohIndiaFit campaign has been a massive hit on Twitter with Rathore doing push-ups in one of his tweets before challenging Hrithik Roshan, Saina Nehwal and Kohli in the tweet. The campaign has widely been praised by many on social media.
The challenge went viral, especially after Modi uploaded a two-minute video where he is seen walking, stretching and doing breathing exercise on a Panchtatvas track in his garden.
