"We started this Raahgiri programme 2.5 years back. Some of them were not confident that this programme will be a success. I keep telling people that it is not only Sunday but Funday (F standings for forgiveness, U for untying oneself and N for no-criticism). Youths must improve their lives by taking part in such events. If they will be happy, then the whole Haryana will be happy and healthy," he said.
While addressing the event in the morning, CM Khattar also lauded Bhutan for creating the Gross National Happiness Index where experts conduct surveys to check how much citizens are happy. "In Bhutan, they have created a happiness index. But in other countries, they just see stock mark index, economic index etc. In Bhutan, they keep a check of how many times people are laughing or getting angry. People must participate in programs such as Raahgiri to be stress-free."
Haryana Chief Minister also stated that the state government has constituted Yoga Aayog to encourage people to practice yoga regularly. It should be noted that Haryana is the second state after Chhattisgarh in the country to constitute such Aayog.
In his concluding remark, Khattar lauded the yoga practitioners, sportsmen, and youth for participating in the event and making it a success.
