"I have only one objection with the BJP launching an all out publicity campaign to promote yoga that it's not a thing to be done in public for publicity, but it's a fitness regime which should be done in private for one's own good health. I believe that yoga is a philosophy and way of life," he told reporters on the sidelines of Janata Durbar at the Chief Minister's official residence.

Attacking the BJP's publicity campaign for the International Yoga Day on June 21 when its national president Amit Shah will be coming to Bihar to lead a mass yoga event, Kumar said he had doubts whether the party really wants to promote the ancient fitness regime or achieve anything more referring to the Assembly polls in the state later this year.

The Chief Minister also criticised the Centre for not including the reputed yoga centre at Munger to organize a function there to coincide with the International Yoga Day next week. He said if the government is sincere about promoting yoga among the people then it should have promoted the Munger-based yoga centre too.
