PM Modi said people in all parts of the nation people have been connected to yoga. He announced two awards – international level and national level — for good work on yoga. He said the awards will be given to the recipients on the next Yoga Day.
Earlier addressing the people, Modi pitched for treating diabetes through yoga.
“I want to request trainers who are associated with yoga, from this public platform. From next year when we celebrate yoga day, in this one year, you continue to do what you do for yoga but focus on one subject and this is my subject- Diabetes and yoga,” he said.
“All people belonging to the yoga field, whatever knowledge they have, they must continue with the rest of their yoga activities but this (diabetes) must be the main focus,”
