VARANASI: Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan today accused BJP of giving a religious hue to yoga which, he said, is "secular" and belongs to everyone.

He mocked at the Centre, saying that yoga helps increasing appetite but due to rampant inflation under the NDA rule, people can't even afford to eat.

"Everyone thinks that yoga increases appetite and improves health. But inflation is so high that pulses are being sold for Rs 160/Kg. From where one will eat?" he asked.
