Ranchi, June 21 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that yoga hasn't reached the poor people and tribal belts of the country, and urged them to make yoga an integral part of their lives. He also gave the moto "yoga for peace, harmony and progress".

Modi performed yoga along with around 30,000 people in Prabhat Tara ground here on the occasion of the fifth International Yoga Day.  Adressing the participants, Modi said: "Modern yoga has not reached the poor and tribal people. We have to make yoga an integral part of their lives. Poor people suffer more from diseases and it makes them poorer... Yoga is a medium to come out from poverty."  He said in the changing world, "we have to take preventive measures for illness and focus on wellness".  "Yoga is discipline. Yoga is beyond age, rich, poor, caste, religion, region and boundaries. 'yoga sabka hai aur sab yoga ke hai' (yoga is of everyone, everyone is of yoga)," he said.
