Students take out cycle rally

Rohtak: Students of Gandhi School, a makeshift institution being run by a social activist Naresh Kumar for the past 15 years to educate children of migrant labourers, took out a cycle rally in the city to motivate people for not bursting crackers on this Diwali. The rally was flagged off by social activist Kashmiri Lal Arora from Sector 5 which culminated at Sector 1 after passing through various residential localities. “Preserving the environment is the responsibility of every citizen. Since air quality index is hitting very poor level nowadays, there is a dire need of saying no to crackers this Diwali,” said Naresh.
