Odisha babu rides bi­cy­cle to spread green mes­sage

The Asian Age - - Nation -

A se­nior of­fi­cial of the Odisha road trans­port depart­ment cur­rently posted in Malka­n­giri dis­trict has adopted a unique way – cy­cling - to raise en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness among people.

By ped­al­ing a bi­cy­cle daily for reg­u­lar nonof­fi­cial work near the lo­cal­ity, the of­fi­cer named Pra­hal­lad Be­hera spreads a mes­sage to keep the pol­lu­tion away.

“The ve­hi­cle ( bi­cy­cle) was in­vented out of ne­ces­sity. It should be used in need. We should ride a bi­cy­cle to con­trol pol­lu­tion and re­duce the ac­ci­dent rate,” said Mr Be­hera.
