New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the nation and talked on various topic on the 20th edition of 'Mann Ki Baat' radio programme.

In the radio programme, PM Modi said that he would attend the second International Yoga Day programme which falls on June 21, 2016 at Chandigarh.

“On June 21, International Day of Yoga, I will join a programme in Chandigarh to practice yoga with them,” he said in 'Mann Ki Baat'.

He further states that Yoga Day is not merely an event and inspires to include it in the daily routine for 20-30 minutes.

He stressed that prevention was better than cure.

“Poor families have to spend too much for health issues. But there is no cost involved in being healthy,” PM Modi added.

The International Yoga Day was declared to be internationally recognised by the UN General Assembly (UNGA) on December 11, 2014.

Prime Minister suggested the date, June 21, in his address to the UN General Assembly.
