New Delhi: Hundreds of people, including women, were today led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a cycle-rally here between Red Fort and Bhagwan Das Marg to mark Delhi's first ‘Car-Free Day', aimed at encouraging people to use public transport.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, other cabinet ministers, Chief Secretary and bureaucrats also participated in the rally.

Kejriwal rode bicycle from Red Fort to Bhagwan Das Marg and appealed to participants to make bicycle-riding a habit.  “People should leave their vehicles and use public transport. Since pollution is increasing in Delhi, there is a need to run cycle which is also good for health,” he said.  The chief minister said he is a diabetic and riding bicycle benefits his health.
