NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today cheekily issued a fitness challenge, no, not to any of his party colleagues, but to Karnataka chief minister, the JD(S)’s HD Kumaraswamy, whom he and his party bitterly battled not long ago. And the Karnataka CM responded with an equally cheeky reply.Kumaraswamy said that fitness is indeed very important and that he does work out, but that he’s “more concerned” about the fitness and development of Karnataka.“I am honoured& thankU very much for d concern about my health I believe physical fitness is imptnt for all&support d cause. Yoga-treadmill r part of my daily workout regime. Yet, I am more concerned about devlpment fitness of my state&seek ur support for it,” tweeted the chief minister’s office. About three weeks ago, Modi accepted a similar challenge from cricket captain Virat Kohli , and today, even as he posted a video of part of his fitness routine, he issued his own such challenge to Kumaraswamy,
