Yoga is a gift of Nepal, not of India: PM Oli

Nepal, June 22

Nepal’s caretaker Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has once again given a shocking statement. He has claimed that Yoga is a gift of Nepal. Addressing a program on the occasion of International Yoga Day, on Monday, Oli said that there was no India when Yoga started.

He said that Yoga was born in Nepal not in India. He said that the present India was not in the past. India was in factions when yoga came into existence. He said that at that time India was like a continent or a subcontinent. Oli also claimed that Indian experts are hiding facts about this.


This is not the first time that Oli had made a controversial statement against India. Earlier in July last year, he had said that Lord Ram was Nepali and the real Ayodhya, Ram Janmabhoomi is in Nepal. Oli has been accusing India of grabbing Nepal’s culture.
