The Jharkhand capital was selected as the venue for the main event for the fifth International Day of Yoga.

Modi also said the government has been working to make Yoga a pillar of preventive healthcare.

Expressing concern that young people were becoming vulnerable to heart ailments, Modi said, “Yoga can play a huge role in tackling the issue and hence, this year’s theme is ‘Yoga for Heart’.” He appealed to the people to take yoga to all sections of society.

“We should make efforts to take yoga from cities to villages, tribal areas. Yoga is above regions, above faith, above everything,” Modi told the gathering.

The prime minister stressed that, for yoga to become popular, infrastructure for it must be strengthened. He said the government was working towards it.

Urging people to make yoga a part of daily life, Modi said, “Peace and harmony are related to Yoga. People across the world must practice it.”

The prime minister had arrived here Thursday night to participate in the main event on the International Yoga Day.

Since 2015, the International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually on 21 June.
