“I think yoga is essential for every individual. I am confident that after the workshop, the participants will feel nice and find a change in themselves,” Fadnavis said after inaugurating a one-day yoga workshop for Mumbai Police at Prena Hall in south Mumbai. Fadnavis said everybody knows the importance of yoga, but they hardly practice it. “I think the police department should regularly do yoga,” he said.

As many as 60 personnel from different police stations across the city are participating in the course in an effort to reduce stress endured by them.
