New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (September 24) will interact with fitness experts and influencers from across the country to mark the one-year anniversary of Fit India Movement.

The online interaction will see participants sharing tips and anecdotes from their fitness journey and the prime minister expressing his thoughts on the virtues of a healthy life, according to an official statement issued.

Cricketer Virat Kohli, model and avid runner Milind Soman, nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar are some among other fitness influencers who will participate in the event.

PM Modi took to Twitter to encourage the citizens to be part of the movement so that it builds a stronger India.

The Fit India Movement envisioned and launched by PM Modi on August 29, 2019, has seen collective participation of more than 3.5 crore Indians in various events, with more than 2.5 crore participants in the Fit India Freedom Run that was launched on August 15, 2019, with a digital footprint of 30 crore people. 

The Fit India Dialogue aims to draw ideas of health and fitness from citizens in taking the Fit India Movement forward.

“The basic tenet on which the Fit India Movement was envisaged, that of involving citizens to imbibe fun, easy and non-expensive ways in which to remain fit and therefore bring about a behavioural change which makes fitness an imperative part of every Indian’s life, is being strengthened by this dialogue,” the statement said.

 Anyone can join the dialogue on the website https://pmindiawebcast.nic.in/ at 12pm on September 24, it added.
