Gone are the days when the Parliament was filled with old, near-to-death politicians with a loud voice and a substantial paunch. It seems the fitness bug has bitten politicians too nowadays.
The effect may be even more colossal as these politicians are realizing that hitting the gym is not just good for their health. Flaunting workout routines seems to be the new strategy through which politicians are connecting with the public.
And we have to say, these politicians are setting an amazing example for us lesser people that no matter how busy you are, you can always try to stay fit.
Today, we rank some of the fittest politicians in India, who are setting such #fitnessgoals for us.
After giving some amazing performances in many Marathi films, actor Amol Kolhe is currently a Lok Sabha MP from Shirur and member of Nationalist Congress Party. Next to his political goals, it seems that staying fit is the new obsession for this politician.
Son of Lok Janshakti Party Ram Vilas Paswan and once an actor, Chirag Paswan is now a full time politician from Jamui constituency. Maybe that is the reason this dapper politician does workouts at night to keep himself fit.
Who could be a better influencer than Minister of State for Home Affairs? You wouldn’t know by looking at him, but Kiren Rijiju is quite the gym freak. He even shared his workout routines on his social media.
Rahul Gandhi may well be the Akshay Kumar of politics. It is not just fitness on his mind; his black belt in Martial Arts proves that he has a more holistic approach to fitness that revolves around physical and mental strength.
No surprises there! 2006 Commonwealth Games Gold-Medalist Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has not chucked his regular fitness routine for his new stint as a Lok Sabha MP from Jaipur.
Hope these exemplary young politicians can inspire India’s less enthused leadership to make a few changes in their lives too.
