    Yoga promotes unity, harmony in society: Minister

    Jadhav appreciated the people participating in the event in large numbers with enthusiasm despite a downpour. The event was scheduled to be held on the lawns of the SKICC on the banks of the Dal Lake but had to be shifted indoors due to incessant rain.

    “I feel happy to address this gathering. Yoga not only boosts a person's physical and mental health but also plays a role in the unity, harmony and welfare of the society,” he added.

    The Ayush minister said yoga helps people develop their overall health and morale and inculcates discipline and tolerance. People across the have shown huge enthusiasm to celebrate this day, he said.
