Union Minister Kiren Rijiju has quite the reputation of being one of the most active and fittest politicians. He is also up to date on the latest trends on social media and frequently posts photos and videos of himself taking part in such challenges. Remember the bottle cap challenge?
Two days ago, Rijiju posted a video of himself climbing a rope, which seemed to be attached to a pole. What really amused his followers was how effortlessly he managed to climb rope. His moves even impressed Olympic medallist Carmelita Jeter, who couldn't help but drop a comment.
Rijiju captioned his tweet, "At world class NIMUS (National Institute of Mountaineering & Allied Sports at Dirang. Along with CM @PemaKhanduBJP ji will trek above 15,000 feet towards Mago-Thingu to complete #GandhiSankalpYatra."
