PM should inspire the states and the cities to present a clean environment so that people may be healthier.

Many have expressed the opinion that while fitness may be a nice thing to aim for, the expectations around a Prime Minister’s position are much higher. They would, perhaps, want the PM to take up the challenge of vikas for all while leaving their fitness regimens to them. In fact, the Karnataka CM, HD Kumaraswami, when challenged on his fitness, retorted by saying that he was concerned more with the health of his state Karnataka.

The Prime Minister is admired for his fitness. But Twitterati are more worried about the health of the nation.

The fitness challenge, first thrown by the sports minister, has proved popular and it came to the PM via Team India cricket captain Virat Kohli. But then Twitterati also have a point to make about access to spaces like the one in which the PM practices his yoga. In fact, some have a legitimate grouse about the areas around the pathways on which they walk or run for their fitness are dirty and that they need to be cleaned. Swachh Bharat may have to catch up with common areas like parks and walking spaces which the public use in highly built up cities and the PM should inspire the states and the cities to present a clean environment so that people may be healthier.
