India's External Affairs Minister Sishma Swaraj

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday urged the Centre to declare Bhagwad Gita as national holy book.  

Swaraj was attending the celebrations marking 5,151 years of the Bhagwad Gita in Delhi. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and several others were also present during the celebrations.

Swaraj added that she participated in the event not as a minister but like an ordinary person.
