All arrangements are complete for the Yoga Day event at the iconic Golden Pagoda, a Buddhist temple, where Union Minister of State for Rural Development Faggan Singh Kulaste will lead the celebration, official sources said.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu will celebrate Yoga Day in his hometown Tawang, while Arunachal’s own MP and Union Law & Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju will lead the International Yoga Day programme at Dong in Anjaw district. 

Dong is the easternmost village in India, located near the point where India, China and Myanmar meet, which is said to receive the first sun rays in India.

In Itanagar, the event will be held at the Governor’s Secretariat, State Civil Secretariat, Assembly Secretariat, State Police Headquarters and a few other locations.

Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr BD Mishra called upon the people of the State to be part of IDY, the great universally popular movement initiated by the Prime Minister of India. 

He expressed hope that this international event will be conducted at all levels, from State, District, and Block to Panchayat levels in an impressive manner and motivate one and all to practice Yoga.

The Governor said that Yoga is truly an invaluable gift of the ancient Indian sublime way of living. It embodies unity of mind and body. 

It promotes unison amongst the people, and concord between man and nature. It encourages the holistic approach to health, harmony and happiness. Yoga ensures the physical and mental well-being of the people who pursue it. It is on account of this unique value of Yoga that it has been gaining popularity throughout the world, irrespective of caste, creed, region, religion or race.

“We need to integrate Yoga as part of our daily routine. It carries the rare boon of hope for facing the contemporary mental and physical stresses with ease and comfort, by one and all,” the Governor said.

“On this International Day of Yoga during the special occasion of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, I call upon all my Arunachali brethren to participate in the International Day of Yoga with zeal and zest. For a healthier lifestyle, healthier Arunachal Pradesh, healthier nation and healthier world, let us all practise Yoga,” the Governor said in his message.
