Senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani on Friday showed his vigour that he is fit to lead the country by trying a hand at 'dumbells' and 'weights' at the new gymnasium developed by the civic body in Vadaj area.

The 81-year-old BJP leader inaguarated the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation's complex having a swimming pool and a gymnasium.

He picked up two one kg dumbells and lifted them above his shoulders, both his hands up in the air.

Advani also flexed his muscles with some shoulder crunches at the gymnasium built in his Gandhinagar constituency at the cost of Rs 3.58 crore.

He also took a tour of the entire complex which included the swimming pool area, the dressing and shower room.

The BJP leader said that he was happy that such complex has been developed by the AMC, and hoped that it will benefit the people of nearby areas.

Advani said that more such facilities are needed for the youths in the state, which will ultimately help create awarness for good health.
