Her views come in the wake of the Opposition accusing the Centre to pushing its ‘Hindutva’ agenda by asking participants to chant vedic mantras during the Yoga Day event.

Clearing the air over the controversy, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu has earlier said that it is not mandatory.



He said it is just a sort of exercise or discipline which unifies the body and the mind and has been accepted even by the International community.
