Throughout the launch ceremony, Shri Rijiju talked about the importance of fitness in school life and stated, “Students are the driving force behind building India fit. I am delighted to observe that so many schools have enrolled for the initiative and the numbers are increasing daily. This supports in reaching our purpose to make every Indian fit as the energy for it is produced from these schools itself.”
The Fit India School week program was launched in November 2019 and witnessed participation from over 15,000 schools.
