Dehradun: “Yoga has emerged as the biggest unifying force in the world,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said leading close to 50,000 people today in Dehradun to mark the fourth International Yoga Day celebrations.
The Prime Minister reached the venue a little after 6:30 am, addressed the gathering and performed yoga along with those assembled there.
Yoga has become the biggest mass movement and it has shown the world the path from illness to wellness. “Instead of increasing suffering, Yoga heals,” PM Modi said before he went on to perform the asanas.
