On the occasion of International World Day when everyone is adopting yoga in their lifestyle, how can our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, stand behind. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, led around 50,000 people in Dehradun today morning to mark the 4th International Yoga Day celebrations.

A picture is shared on social media in which we can see him performing yoga asanas with thousands of others during a mass yoga event at the Forest Research Institute (FRI) grounds in Dehradun.

Here is the complete post shared on Twitter:

While performing breathing exercises on the lawns of the Forest Research Institute (FRI), PM Modi was wearing a white T-shirt and a pair of white trousers. He was accompanied by thousands of Yoga enthusiasts performing yoga asanas on saffron yoga mats.

The main function venue in Dehradun where PM addressed the volunteers was shut to visitors from past two days. There were around 50,000 mats spreading at the function venue in which volunteers performed breathing exercises. As, PM Modi was to address a huge number of gathering so nearly 3,000 security cameras were arranged on duty with 60 cctv cameras keeping a close watch.

Last year, Narendra Modi led the International Yoga Day celebrations in Lucknow. In 2016, Chandigarh was the host city for the main event on this occasion and the first International Yoga Day in 2015 was led by PM Modi in New Delhi only.

Not only the Indian Prime Minister but many other celebrities are also sharing their pictures and videos doing Yoga asanas. We got a few pictures from Kangana Ranaut in which she is clearly visible performing Yoga asanas.

Her Instagram is captioned as:

"#KanganaRanaut shows her dedication towards #Yoga on #InternationalYogaDay2018 & encourages everyone to adopt Yoga as a lifestyle & a way to spiritual awakening. #YogaDay2018 #WorldYogaDay #internationalyogaday"
