Tiwari invites Kejriwal, Dikshit to attend BJP's Yoga day event
New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday sent an invitation to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and DPCC chief Sheila Dikshit for attending an International Yoga Day event organised by his party on June 21. Tiwari said that the Delhi BJP will be hosting the event on Friday morning in Ghonda of North-East Delhi and hoped that both Kejriwal and Dikshit would join him there. Weeks ago, Tiwari had defeated Dikshit from the North-East Delhi parliamentary seat in a landslide victory.
Adding that newly minted BJP working president JP Nadda is also likely to attend the event, Tiwari said, "I would like to invite Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sheila ji, if they are not going to attend any other such event, to join me at the yoga session to be organised by Delhi BJP in Ghonda," he said.
Around 13 crore people, including 10 lakh in the national capital, are expected to attend International Yoga Day celebrations and perform the ancient yogic exercises across the country, Tiwari said. Over 76 lakh people have already registered themselves to participate in yoga sessions on the day, through Ayush Ministry's website, said the Delhi BJP president. "Those practising yoga lead a healthy and long life. It transcends boundaries of caste and religion and everybody can do it. Those having any reservation in saying 'Om' may simply utter 'O' when performing the breathing exercises," he said. Delhi BJP will organise yoga events at 300 places across the city. Several Union ministers and members of Parliament will participate in these events, Tiwari said and appealed people to take time out to join in and perform yoga for a healthy and happy life.
