By Deepika

Hitting back at Modi's fitness Challenge, Congress on Thursday asked the Prime Minister to accept the economic fitness challenge of common man by reducing the run way prices of Petrol and Diesel.

In a series of tweets, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala encapsulated the opposition's list of government failures:

A day after Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli accepted Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore's fitness challenge and tagged Narendra Modi in his video post, the Prime Minister has accepted his challenge and said he will be posting his video soon.

When Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports challenged the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper to share his fitness video as part "#HumFitTohIndiaFit campaign", Kohli took it further by asking PM Modi, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma share their own.

PM Modi has responded in his usual style by accepting the "challenge" too. Taking to Twitter, PM Modi replied "Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon. @imVkohli #HumFitTohIndiaFit".

The campaign came into limelight on Wednesday when Rathore, in a self-made video posted on Twitter, urged Indians to shoot a video of their "fitness mantra" and share it. He then did 10 push-ups and also termed Prime Minister Modi his source of inspiration for staying fit.
