Ahead of the International Day of Yoga, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed the need to sync Mysuru’s growth with tourism and wellness. Listing some projects the Centre has initiated for Mysuru’s development, he said yoga will create a brand for Mysuru globally.

At a public meeting after launching a slew of development projects, he said he’ll continue to focus on Mysuru’s development. He said that it’s in Karnataka that we see both spirituality and financial development. “Mysuru is the confluence of history, heritage and modernity. To connect the world with a healthy lifestyle, we selected Mysuru for Yoga Day celebrations. Millions of people will join Mysuru in celebrating Yoga Day,” he said.
