Kiran Bedi Says Chanting By Thousands On Yoga Day Brought Rains To Delhi


NEW DELHI — BJP leader and the first woman to join the Indian Police Service, Kiran Bedi, clearly overestimates the power of yoga. Bedi tweeted on Sunday that the mass outdoor yoga session on International Yoga Day is what brought welcome morning showers to the parched national capital.

On Sunday, moments after Prime Minister Narendra Modi left Rajpath following a mega event in which he led nearly 37,000 yoga enthusiasts in the heart of Delhi, it began to rain.

While the met department had predicted pre-monsoon showers for the capital city, Bedi suggested that it was the yoga event which brought relief to Delhi from a severe heat spell.

Social media took notice of Bedi's tweet and began to troll her.

In response, the BJP leader decided to block the 'trolls' on Twitter.

Impressed by Modi's Yoga skills, Bedi also posted a few 'rare' pictures of the PM on Twitter.

Following the footsteps of the Prime Minister, Bedi also tweeted a selfie of her doing Yoga at Rajpath.
