He said Tamanna will give tips on yoga to Shah.

At least half a dozen union ministers from Bihar, including Ravi Shankar Prasad, Rajeev Pratap Rudy, Radha Mohan Singh and Ram Kirpal Yadav, will also attend the yoga camp in Patna.

Shah's plans to attend the yoga camp here has become a political issue.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said they had made yoga a matter of "show-off and publicity".

He termed BJP's move to hold a yoga camp on June 21 a "drama", following which Telecommunications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad advised Nitish Kumar to practice 'pranayam' for peace of mind.
