Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches #FitIndiaMovement on National Sports Day

PM Modi had announced the Fit India movement campaign during his Mann Ki Baat radio programme telecast on 25th August.

A year after the #HumFitTohIndiaFit challenge, PM Modi today launched #FitIndiaMovement on National Sports Day in Delhi. PM Modi had announced the campaign during his Mann Ki Baat radio programme telecast on 25th August. He had said that he would like to see his listeners fit and make them fitness conscious.

Launching the initiative, PM Modi congratulated the athletes who have made India proud on global platforms. He said that their victory is because of their hard work and perseverance. PM Modi said that sports is directly related to fitness. However, the Fit India Movement which is launched today goes beyond sports. He said that even though fitness has been a part of our lifestyle, owing to technological changes, fitness levels have gone down.

Adding how a lot of people end up buying gadgets to improve fitness, PM Modi said how these gadgets are then thrown in a corner of the house after a few days. “People keep fitness apps in their phones but do not use them after some time,” he said. PM Modi stated how lifestyle diseases like diabetes and hypertension are on the rise. “Earlier people would get heart attacks at 50-60 years. Now they get heart attacks at 35-40 years of age,” he said. PM Modi said that these lifestyle diseases are due to lifestyle disorders which could be avoided by making small changes in our lives.

PM Modi said that fitness and health should become intrinsic part of discussions in families and emphasised on the importance of physical as well as mental health. “If body is fit, mind is fit,” PM Modi said.
