KANPUR: The local unit of BJP will celebrate International Yoga Day on June 21 by holding close to 100 yoga camps in city parks where party flag, poster of Prime Minister Narendra Modi alongside that of Bharat Mata would be kept, party sources said.            

However, it was not clear if BJP Margdarshak Mandal member and Kanpur MP Murli Manohar Joshi, will attend any of the camps in his constituency, BJP Kanpur unit president Surendra Maithani told PTI today.            

Asked if Joshi would attend any of the June 21 events in the city, Maithani said: "Till now he has no programme to attend any of the yoga camps".  

Elaborating on the preparations for the special yoga camps, Maithani said every participant would have to offer flowers to the Bharat Mata poster.          

He said a yoga trainer would be provided at each camp and there would be separate camps for women with woman trainer.            

BJP MLAs, office-bearers, and senior party workers have been tasked with ensuring arrangements for the camps and to raise awareness among people about it, he said.            

He said that party workers have started informing people about these special yoga camps, Maithani said.
