: Hundreds of Kohima denizens participated in the Fit India Freedom Run/Walk 3.0 organised by the Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KSCDL) on Friday.

Chief Executive Officer of Kohima Smart City, K Theunuo said the main purpose of the event was to encourage physical fitness and help citizens get rid of obesity, laziness, stress, anxiety and diseases.

The third edition of the Fit India Freedom Run was held across the country to promote fitness. Theunuo urged the people to spend at least 30 to 60 minutes daily for physical activities, celebrate a healthy lifestyle and remain fit.

He emphasised on the need to give time for exercise and urged the people to make fitness an integral part of life.

General Manager (Planning) of KSCDL, Kezhochole Rhetso, pointed out that it is the responsibility of the citizens to press upon the authorities to provide amenities and the city authority should provide a platform for citizens to walk and run.

As citizens, it is one’s duty to walk or run; only then the city authority will provide citizens with amenities, she said while encouraging the people to walk, run and exercise more to stay fit.

More than 300 people, including army personnel, youth, and children participated in the fitness run from TT Stadium Raj Bhavan to High School Junction.

Nodal officer of Fit India Freedom Run/Walk 3.0, Yhunchilo Khing, said that the event was not a competition but to create awareness about healthy lifestyles among the citizens. It is just the beginning and a lot of interventions are in the pipeline, he said while urging all to make Kohima a top smart city in the country.
