New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led a cycle rally here in the capital’s first Car Free Day on Thursday, and said traveling needs to be made safe.

Over 100 cyclists joined Kejriwal in the rally held between the 17th century Red Fort in Old Delhi and India Gate, a World War I monument. He was accompanied by his ministers and other bureaucrats.

He said that there was too much congestion on Delhi roads that leads to pollution in the city and that people need to step forward to improve the condition.

Some 84 lakh vehicles ply in Delhi every day, contributing to its chaotic traffic and worsening quality of air.

He cited cycling helps all, even a diabetic like himself.

A fellow cyclist Puneet, who is in his 40s, lauded the government’s efforts and urged it to hold the rally on Sundays.

All the party members hail from various states of the country. In a move to curb any wrongdoing on any one’s behalf, everyone in the party is made to sign affidavits stating that they would never join a political party or contest elections.

He also asserted on the point that, he doesn’t want anyone from his new party to turn out like Arvind Kejriwal and thus he has made every member of the core group to sign the affidavit.

In the coming days, Anna Hazare will be protesting in Delhi for raising the issue of “competent Lokpal” and to highlight farmer’s problems.

Anna Hazare came to light in 2011, when he raised his voice against corruption and went ahead with his hunger strike at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. It was only after this; Kejriwal associated himself with Hazare and grabbed the opportunity to launch him into elections and launched the Aam Aadmi Party.
