He said people celebrate the International Yoga Day once in a year in the name of Yoga and then get busy in their daily routine.

Kejriwal announced,”India gave yoga to the world but in our country it is becoming extinct slowly. To make yoga a public movement and to make it a part of everyone’s life, we will start yoga classes from October 2 this year in Delhi’s parks, halls and community centres”.

“Elaborate preparations are being made for this. An army of yoga instructors is being created. If 30-40 people in any residential colony come forward, the Delhi government will provide them yoga instructors for free,” Kejriwal said while addressing the gathering.

The CM said yoga is a technique which keeps mind, body and soul healthy and appealed people to practise it regularly.
