Fitness is the new Mantra and setting fitness goals is not any fitness junkie but our Chief Minister, Naveen Patnaik. The CM has set example that age is just a number and great things can be achieved with sheer determination irrespective of any age.
A video of the CM doing the rounds in social media is bound to perk you up. In the video is seen Naveen Patnaik doing various work-outs banishing myths that different forms of exercises are meant for different age groups.
The CM having donned jogger pants and T-shirt is seen jogging, doing pranayam, lifting weights and cycling inside the premises of Naveen Niwas. The video ends with him concluding, “Getting ready to fight for the people of Odisha”.
Apparently, it is perceived that the video has been released ahead of elections to keep rumours at bay that the CM is ailing and physically unfit to take charges of office as CM in the state.
Naveen Patnaik is 72 years old and has been the CM for the longest time the state has had. The BJD Supremo is currently contesting the elections and is all geared up and positive to hold the office of power as his fifth successive term in the state.Odisha News Insight
