As a countdown to the 8th International Yoga Day on 21st of June, a programme of common yoga protocol was organised today by the Ministries of Petroleum and Natural Gas and Housing and Urban Affairs. Events were held at 75 places by the two Ministries, including certain locations abroad.

The Session was attended virtually by the Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas and  Housing and Urban Affairs Shri Hardeep Singh Puri from New Delhi while the Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli joined from Asia's first and world's oldest refinery- Digboi Refinery.

In his message telecast during the event, Shri Puri appreciated the initiative of the AYUSH  Ministry for organising the countdown to the International Yoga Day.

Describing Yoga as the three thousand old tradition, the Minister said, Yoga is now uniformly and universally recognised and documented as an alternative system of medicine. Secretaries and others officers from both the Ministries and other offices associated with the Ministries also participated in the yoga sessions.

This year, as the nation celebrates Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav to mark 75th year of Independence, Ministry of AYUSH has initiated a 100-day countdown programme starting from the 13th of March with the participation of 100 different organisations.
