Union minister Kiren Rijuju recently started an interesting Twitter chat on fitness. He did this by posting a 37-second workout video of colleague and former Olympic shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.
Here, watch Rathore doing push-ups to the tune of ‘Eye of the Tiger’.
The tweet received a floor of praises, with sports minister Vijay Goel being one of the early commentators:
Rathore too reacted, and he in turn praised Rijuju’s fitness:

Rathore replied too:
Rijuju took the conversation forward by posting a workout video of himself, and this time with a social message: say no to drugs:

Rijuju himself often posts pictures of his workout on Twitter. Here’s one from November:
