The announcement was made by Chouhan in the state Assembly soon after the session began here on Friday. Chouhan said that on the initiative taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the UN has decided to observe June 21 as the 'International Yoga Day' which is a "matter of pride" for India.
    
A total of 175 nations supported India's proposal in this regard, which is also highest as far as any proposal is concerned, he said.
    
"Yoga will also be included in the school curriculum," he said. Assembly Speaker Dr Sitasharan Sharma also supported Chouhan's statement saying it was a matter of pride for India.
