Speaking to City Today, DC D Randeep said, “If 1,000 more participants had taken part, we would have made the world record. Members of Baba Ramdev yoga centre took part in a huge number in Ahmedabad. We had enough space for yoga participants. We will do better in the coming days with the government funding.”
