Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and other influencers on Thursday to celebrate the first anniversary of the Fit India Movement. The interaction will be called ‘Fit India Dialogue’. The online interaction will see participants sharing tips and anecdotes from their fitness journey and the prime minister expressing his thoughts on the virtues of a healthy life, according to an official statement.
"Join our Honourable PM and me at the Fit India Dialogue, tomorrow at 12 PM IST. See you there," Virat Kohli tweeted.
Apart from Virat Kohli, model and avid runner Milind Soman, nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar and other fitness influencers will also be a part of the interaction.
"Dal chawal ghee goes mainstream and I am excited to be a part of the #FitIndiaDialogue. Looking forward to a free wheeling chat with Hon. PM Narendra Modi ji and with fitness icons of India. Join us," Rujuta Diwekar tweeted.
Urging people to join the event, PM Modi tweeted, "Are you already a fitness aficionado? Do you intend to make fitness a part of your routine? Bringing to you, an interesting Fit India Dialogue to discuss aspects related to nutrition, physical health, mental well-being and more... See you on 24th at 12 noon!"
The official statement from government said that fitness has become an even more important aspect of life because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this dialogue will see a timely and fruitful conversation on nutrition, wellness and various other aspects of fitness, the statement said.
"The basic tenet on which the Fit India Movement was envisaged, that of involving citizens to imbibe fun, easy and non-expensive ways in which to remain fit and therefore bring about a behavioural change which makes fitness an imperative part of every Indian's life, is being strengthened by this dialogue," it said.
