Naik said in Lok Sabha that the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has sent the letter to the states favoring adoption of yoga as part of the school syllabus so that those students who wished to enroll themselves could take it, though it will not be a compulsory subject. We have told them that whoever wants to do Yoga, they should be allowed to do Yoga. Otherwise physical training is adjusted in the same period," he said.
