AGARTALA, June 21 (TIWN): Along with the whole nation, state Tripura too is observing International Yoga Day on Sunday.

Chief Minister Biplab Deb has greeted the state on the Yoga Day. All top leaders have also wished the state on World Yoga Day, inspiring everyone to participate in regular Yoga.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Sunday (June 21) to mark International Yoga Day. Earlier, PM Modi had urged people, in a video message, to observe the day from the confines of their homes due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. 

Several digital events have been organised across the world by Indian missions to mark the day. On December 11, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21 as 'International Day of Yoga', months after PM Modi had proposed the idea.

Yoga is a medium that establishes harmony between body and mind, action and thought, between man and nature. Modi ji's efforts led to global acceptance of Yoga, which is a precious gift of Indian culture to the entire humanity, says Union Home Minister Amit Shah. 

- Coronavirus specifically attacks our respiratory system, which gets strengthened by pranayama or breathing exercise. Yoga helps us to improve immunity. The asanas help the strength of our body and the metabolism of our body: PM Modi

- Make yoga at home, with family a party of your life. We can make it successful if we give it a try: PM Modi
