"I put forth a proposal of 'International Yoga Day' before the United Nations, which was passed in 100 days through support of 177 nations. It's a matter of honor for our nation; did anyone think that yoga can also be used as a toll to connect different nations?" said Prime Minister Modi while addressing the nation in his 'Mann Ki Baat' program.

Prime Minister Modi had on Thursday chaired a high-level meeting to review the preparations for International Yoga Day saying that the events and activities are being planned with an aim of making yoga a mass movement globally.
