Bicycle jatha hopes to create awareness among youth

As part of National Youth Day, the Gandhi Global Family (GGF) has organised a bicycle jatha, in which more than 150 cyclists are expected to participate.

Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, president of GGF’s Karnataka chapter N.L. Narendra Babu said the jatha would be flagged off from Swami Vivekananda statue on Dr. Modi Road by Minister for Food and Civil Supplies Dinesh Gundu Rao on January 11. The jatha will conclude at Mahatma Gandhi statue on M.G. Road.

The jatha was being organised with an aim to not just draw the youth to cycling, but also underscore the importance of having dedicated cycle tracks on city roads and better pedestrian facilities. “Various development works have led to the reduction of tree cover in the city. We are pushing for tree corridors on all roads, which will greatly benefit the pedestrians,” he said.

The jatha also aims to create awareness about the importance of exercising franchise and ensure that the youth involve themselves in nation building and anti-corruption activities.

“We will also celebrate National Youth Day on January 12 and medical camps for those belonging to the unorganised sector, such as construction workers, will be held,” he added.
