No, Kamal Nath Didn't 'Skip' Yoga Day Event. Here's Where He Was
The CM's absence from Yoga Day event had raised several eyebrows, including criticism from BJP. However, later in the day, pictures of him performing Yoga at his residence were released.

Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, who hit the headlines a day earlier for "skipping" a Yoga day event, was actually at the government-run Hamidia hospital in Bhopal for a surgery.
Aruna Kumar, dean of Gandhi Medical College, told reporters on Saturday that Nath was operated upon for trigger finger condition and was kept under observation for a few hours.
The Congress in a communique had claimed that Nath was operated upon at 10am and would probably be discharged from the hospital by evening. The surgery was performed by Dr Sanjiv Gaur and Dr Aditya Agrawal.
Nath's absence from the Yoga Day event had raised several eyebrows, including that of the BJP. But later on Friday, pictures of him performing yoga at his residence were released.
"I am here for treatment as a normal patient and no one should visit me, so that people don't face any inconvenience," Nath said after his examination.
In 2011, former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had also undergone treatment at the same hospital.
While a number of BJP leaders hailed Nath for opting for a government hospital, a few questioned his decision.
Chouhan in a tweet offered best wishes to Nath, but added that he should ensure that the public also receives all the amenities he got at the Hamidia hospital.
BJP spokesperson Rahul Kothari claimed that while it was heartening that Nath expressed faith in the state's doctors, the chief minister had refused to mention the name of Dr Yash Gulati, an orthopedic surgeon from New Delhi.
