Despite a massive increase in Covid-19 cases across the country, the Centre plans to hold a massive Surya Namaskar programme with a large number of devotees.
On the occasion of Makar Sankranti on January 14, Union AYUSH Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that the ministry hopes to see more than one crore people perform Surya Namaskar.
He stated that the Ministry of AYUSH is fully prepared for the global Surya Namaskar programme on Makar Sankranti, January 14th, as part of the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations.
Surya Namaskar, according to Sonowal, is more relevant now that the Covid-19 pandemic has resurfaced.
“It is scientifically proven that Surya Namaskar boosts vitality and immunity, which helps to keep Corona at bay. “We set a target of 75 lakh people participating in the programme, but given the number of registrations and our preparedness, I am optimistic that we will surpass one crore,” he said.
The Indian Yoga Association, National Yoga Sports Federation, Yoga Certification Board, FIT India, and other government and non-governmental organisations, as well as other government and non-governmental organisations, are expected to participate in the world-wide programme on January 14.
