The authorities are going over the top to ensure that the International Yoga Day function in Chandigarh on June 21 is a success. For, 2,000 students of Mohali and Kharar are being held ‘captive’. They will spend three nights at the school, sleeping on the floor mats.They will be woken up at 3 am daily for rehearsal at the yoga venue.
More than 100 buses, including 50 each from the PRTC’s Chandigarh depot and Punjab Roadways, will ferry these students and government employees to the venue, never mind if the commuters are put to inconvenience or if the public facility incurs a loss of Rs 25 lakh in three days. Circulars have also been issued by universities and colleges, asking the employees to hold a yoga function on the premises on June 21. The rehearsals will begin tomorrow. In Ludhiana, Guru Nanak Stadium is being readied for a “successful yoga show”.
