After challenges like #SwachhBharatAbhiyan and #bangbangdare that took Twitter by storm, here’s another one and it is all about staying fit.
Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore went on to Twitter to post a video in which he is doing push-ups in his office while speaking about the importance of fitness. Our Sports Minister is also an Olympic silver medallist in shooting. He started a campaign #HumFitTohIndiaFit through the video.
Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. Here’s my video and I challenge @iHrithik, @imVkohli & @NSaina to join in pic.twitter.com/pYhRY1lNEm

Rathore invited people to post pictures and videos of their fitness attempts and regimes on Twitter using the hashtag #FitnessChallenge and at the same time challenged Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Saina Nehwal. While some people responded quite quickly to the challenge, a few are yet to post their video.
Saina quickly responded and invited Rana Daggubati, PV Sindhu and Gautam Gambhir:
Thank u so much @Ra_THORe sir for challenging me ..#HumFitTohIndiaFit

Besides them, some of our ministers showed their fitness regime too. While Jayant Sinha, MoS for Civil Aviation, performed Surya Namaskar, Manoj Tiwari, BJP Delhi Chief, tried some stretching and push-ups. Pratyush Kanth, Delhi BJP Social Media in-charge did some crunches.
As Hon. PM @narendramodi ji envisions a healthy India, I join the #HumFitTohIndiaFit initiated by @Ra_THORe ji.
Here’s how I stay fit. Post your videos & join us.
I nominate @sarbanandsonwal ji, @KirenRijiju ji & @SuPriyoBabul ji to take the #FitnessChallenge forward. pic.twitter.com/i5zelQ26TQ
