If you think only the athletes and the Bollywood stars in the country can give you fitness goals, you would be so wrong. Welcome to India. Here, even some politicians can do more crunches than you.
On Thursday, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju posted a 27-second long clip of himself. Rijiju is seen doing leg raise kicks while a remix of 'Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko' plays in the background.
Rijiju's workout video was in response to his colleague Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.
Yesterday, Rijiju had posted a video of the former Olympic silver medallist effortlessly does a series of push-ups on an exercise ball.

"While doing duty we've no time for physical fitness. But my Olympian colleague...gives me a tough challenge," Rijiju, the Minister of State for Home Affairs, had written sharing the video.
Rathore had managed to impress quite a few politicians.
Sports Minister Vijay Goel responded, calling Rathore India's "very own Rocky Balboa."

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu apparently got intimidated by the video.

Rathore had a perfect response to Prabhu's tweet.
This isn't the first time Rijiju and Rathore gave us fitness goals. Last year in October, Rijiju posted a picture of the two of them at the gym.
