CHANDIGARH: Haryana’s CM Manohar Lal Khattar, his ministerial colleagues and party legislators pedalled to the Haryana assembly on the last day of the monsoon session yesterday. Although it was a symbolic gesture, the lawmakers shunning their fuel-guzzling cars should set an example for the masses. The Chief Minister wearing a kurta-payjama and half-jacket bicycled from his official residence in Sector-3 to the Haryana assembly complex, covering just over one kilometre. Khattar said: “This is good for the environment. People should use cycles at least for a day.”  Some ministers in his cabinet and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmakers also followed him. Haryana’s Chief Parliamentary Secretary (CPS) Shyam Singh Rana pedalled a cycle-rickshaw to the assembly. He carried CPS Seema Trikha and Political Advisor to the Chief Minister Jagdish Chopra on his rickshaw. Some other legislators took e-rickshaws (electronic rickshaws) to reach the assembly. Haryana agriculture minister O.P. Dhankar said, “This is a motivational step. People will feel that if the head of a state and political leaders can do it, why can’t others”, when asked if the one-day symbolic gesture would be of any help’’.]]>
