"The NDMC will celebrate this year’s International Day of Yoga at eight locations in its jurisdiction, including Nehru Park, Lodhi Garden, Talkatora Garden, Kartavya Path, New Moti Bagh-IAS Residences area, Sanjay Jheel, Singapore Park, and Central Park-Connaught Place," NDMC Vice Chairman Satish Upadhyay said.

This would be the first time that yoga day will be celebrated at Kartavya Path, which was redeveloped and rechristened last year. At all the locations, yoga demonstration will be done. A recorded message by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will be broadcast on huge LED screens at all locations, he said.

"Our horticulture department has taken necessary measures for maintenance of parks, lawns, pruning of trees and hedges at all the eight venues," he said. Meanwhile, all the venues have been decked up with attractive floral arrangements, flower pots, and colourful flags, Upadhyay said.
