PUNE: FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) Pune Chapter 2019-2020 began its year with the inaugural event on Tuesday in the city. This event was graced by actress Shilpa Shetty who was a guest of honour.

The Chairperson of FLO Pune, Prakash Chhabria, said, “It is a moment of great pleasure that we are entering into the fifth year of FLO Pune Chapter with an inaugural on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. FLO is about engaging and empowering women and we will continue doing so. The theme for this year’s FLO is urban to rural.”

Talking about the application, Shetty said, “My app is for all those people who think fitness and health is a difficult feat to achieve. It is not rocket science, guys. It is simple. You have to make small lifestyle changes to lose weight. You just have to have the will to do it and the discipline to carry it forward. You need discipline for any kind of success, be it weight loss or not.”
