Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar along with his cabinet ministers and party MLAs cycled to the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday in a bid to encourage people to opt for eco-friendly transportation.

62-year-old Khattar and many others rode bicycles to cover the short distance of over one km from the chief minister's residence to the Assembly, some of the women MLAs travelled by e-rickshaws.

 

The chief minister later told reporters that they wanted to give a message to people to make more use of environment-friendly mode of transports.

He said though their gesture was "symbolic", but they want a message should go out that using bicycles is not only good for health, but also environment-friendly.

Notably, on the opening day of the monsoon session of Haryana Assembly on Friday, BJP MLA Pawan Kumar Saini had pedalled around 110 km from his constituency in Kurukshetra district to reach the Assembly in Chandigarh.
