The former Bihar chief minister also said even he did not need to practice Yoga.

"Poor people have to be provided adequate food first for their survival. There are 14 crore poor people in the country who are fighting hunger."

He said landless farmers, poor laborers, milkmen to rickshaw-puller have no problem of pot-belly because they worked hard. "What is the need for them to practice Yoga?"

The RJD leader said that Yoga had turned a fashion among a section of the people who have been suffering from obesity and accumulated fat on their bodies by eating into the funds meant for the poor.

"BJP president Amit Shah and RSS people who have become fat, will practice Yoga. But no need for poor people with symptoms of malnutrition to practice it," Lalu Prasad said.
