“All the youths should stay fit. If all youths do push-ups they will become healthy and Tripura will become healthy too … Automatically Tripura will develop 56-inch chest and follow the direction of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ for development,” Deb said apparently alluding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Deb said he had himself accepted the fitness challenge of Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and tweeted that he does 20 push-ups.
I accept #FitnessChallenge given by Shri @Ra_THORe ji. This is how I remain fit & healthy for building a #NewIndia. I ask my friends from #Tripura spread across the world to accept this challenge & show how they are fulfilling Shri @narendramodi ji's vision of #HumFitTohIndiaFit. pic.twitter.com/3FKJdujIBJ
