Delegates for the first Anti-Corruption Working Group Meeting of G20 nations slated in Gurugram from March 1 to 4 will do yoga daily and the host Haryana is providing instructors for holding sessions, state Chief Minister's Additional Principal Secretary Amit Agrawal said on Saturday.
Reviewing preparations for organising the summit, Agrawal said the day of the participants would begin with a yoga session.
"All participants from different countries will be invited for the yoga session in the morning. Efficient yoga instructors will be provided for them and protocol yoga exercises, which are usually performed on International Yoga Day, will be practiced during their three-day stay at Hotel Leela," he said.
In the virtual meeting, Agrawal said it is a matter of pride for India to have presidency of G-20 Summit and it's an opportunity to showcase Haryana's cultural heritage to the foreign delegates.
It also provides an opportunity to project and promote the city of Gurugram among international community. For this, he said, residents of Gurugram should come forward and participate in preparing the city to host this mega event.
"Everybody should contribute in his or her way. The companies or corporate houses should come forward in presenting a gesture of welcome to the delegates. For example, they can put up approved G-20 creatives and projections on their buildings. In addition, they can adequately lit up their buildings, as is done during Diwali festival. Similarly, the residents can contribute in keeping the city clean."
