Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore started ‘Hum Fir Toh India Fit’ campaign by doing push-up in his office.

Last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also released video of yoga exercise after Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli challenged the PM.
PM Modi posted the video on his Twitter account with ‘Hum Fit Toh India Fit’ tagline.
Taking this challenge is seen as image-building exercise by Haryana BJP president whose son Vikas Barala was booked in high-profile stalking case in Chandigarh involving Varnika Kundu, daughter of Haryana IAS office VS Kundu.
