What is the ‘75-day challenge’ of Ankit Baiyanpuria that PM Modi discussed with him?
Ankit Baiyanpuria got new fame when he launched the demanding 75 ‘Hard Challenge’ on Instagram to enhance his mental fortitude and self-discipline.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday joined Haryana's Ankit Baiyanpuria, a fitness influencer, in a cleanliness drive as part of the ‘Swacchata Hi Seva campaign’. During this collaboration, Baiyanpuria was asked about his ‘75-day challenge’, which he had shared on his Instagram account with the goal of enhancing his mental fortitude and self-discipline. This unique challenge became a topic of discussion as Modi and Baiyanpuria engaged in a simultaneous interaction while participating in the cleanliness drive.
The drive was launched as part of the celebrations marking Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary.
PM Modi took to X (formerly Twitter) to share his experience with Baiyanpuriya and said, “Today, as the nation focuses on Swachhata, Ankit Baiyanpuriya and I did the same! Beyond just cleanliness, we blended fitness and well-being also into the mix. It is all about that Swachh and Swasth Bharat vibe!”
In the video shared by the prime minister, he was seen asking Baiyanpuria about his daily fitness routine and the fitness challenge he has taken up for a total of 75 days. “Ankit aap physical activity keliye kitne time dete ho?” (Ankit, how much time do you dedicate to physical activity in a day?) Modi was seen asking in the video. To this, Ankit replied that he spends a total of four to five hours in a day and mentioned that he is inspired by Modi.
