The BJP on Thursday mocked at Congress president Rahul Gandhi's commentthat Prime Minister Narendra Modi's video footage on fitness was "bizarre" and said the Congress leaderwill not appreciate that as he flies overseas periodically to keep himself fit.

"He (Rahul Gandhi) may not appreciate all that Prime Minister is doing. Rahul Gandhi is used to fly overseas every few months to keep himself fit. So he may not appreciate the importance of something done in India and in Indian traditional style to keep fit," Union Minister and BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi tolda television channel.

Mr Naqvi's remarks come hours after Mr Gandhi at Iftar party hosted by him on Wednesday said that when country's economy is not in good shape, releasing a video on fitness was "bizarre".

Accepting cricket star Virat Kohli's fitness challenge, the Prime Minister on Wednesdayreleased a video of himself undertaking Yoga and other exercises. In a series of tweets, Mr Modi appealed "to every Indian" to devote some part of the day towards fitness.
