Indian MPs Post Workout Videos And Twitter Is Loving Modi’s Leaner And Fitter Ministers

What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you think of Indian politicians?

Let me guess, old, fat people with absolutely no connection to fitness, right?

Well, it’s time to change your opinion.

Last night, Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju, took to Twitter to post this video of Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting, Rajyavardhan Rathore. In the video, Olympic medalist Rathore was seen going through his gym routine.


After Mr Rijiju posted the video with such good words for him, Mr Rathore reciprocated with a tweet.


This started a Twitter chat among our ministers with Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Vijay Goel, making a pretty cool comparison.


Soon, Railway Minister, Suresh Prabhu joined in with more words of praise for Rathore and Rijiju.


And the bromance was on like anything.


The mutual praising was not stopping early.


Inspired by the gym routine and the bromance, Indian Twitterverse started applauding the ministers. Here are a few reactions.

1. Seems like it


2. Then came a challenge for the Railway minister


3. Well, he was an Olympian


4. Meme game strong!


5. While this guy made a valid point


P.S- This was not the first time that Mr Rijiju posted pictures with his gym buddy. Here is a tweet from last year.


And here’s a video of his workout. Pretty cool, ain’t it?

I don’t know about fitness, but these ministers are sure giving #Bromancegoals to the nation.

On a serious note, I sincerely hope that this dedication to fitness by the ministers inspires more and more people in the nation to do the same.
