Ramdev reveals how much did Amit Shah lose weight by practicing yoga

Ahmedabad: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday claimed that Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah lost as much as 20 kgs, thanks to practicing yoga.

Speaking at a yoga camp he held in Ahmedabad, Ramdev said: "People who frivolously say that yoga is not a sport are ignorant and their opinion should be discarded. Yoga is also a sport and it should be included under the sports category.”

"Attempts should also be made to send yoga (as a sport) to the Olympics," The Times of India quoted Ramdev as saying.

A day ahead of the International Yoga Day on June 21, Ramdev appreciated the efforts of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for celebrating it on a huge scale.

He said that yoga is an integral part of the Indian culture and the present government is doing a lot to strengthen it.

"The event has been organised well under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, state Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah," he said.
