This grand event will be inaugurated by former MP Tarun Vijay at Lord Venkateshwara Kalyan Mandapam near the secretariat in Dehradun. Tarun Vijay during a press quoted, “Every posture of a soldier is a yoga posture— holding the arms, zeroing in on the enemy positions, targeting the infiltrators and hoisting the Tricolour after attaining victory and it all demands the highest level of concentration and a winning confidence that Yoga gives them”. Hence, it has been named Sainik Yoga which shall blend spiritualism with the soldier spirit. That’s the spirit of ‘Sant’ and ‘Sipahi’, since ages in the country”.
