Bengalureans walk for a better City

City residents marched in a walkathon from Freedom Park to Anand Rao Circle, raising awareness towards a better Bengaluru on Sunday.

The ‘Walk for Bangalore’ organised by the Akhila Bharatiya Ekta Manch brought to fore several issues plaguing the City.

More than 3,000 volunteers and members from the Manch took part in the walkathon.

Transport and District In-charge Minister Ramalinga Reddy who took part in the programme, said that apart from the government, it was also the duty of the citizens to develop the City.

‘Improve green cover’


“Bengaluru attracts people from all over the world and it is the duty of all its people to join hands in restoring the Garden City to its past glory,” he said. Citizens should strive to improve the green cover by planting more and more saplings in their neighbourhood, the minister added.

President of the Ekta Manch, Uday Kumar Singh said the response to the first edition of walkathon has been positive and they plan to hold it at regular intervals.

MLA Ashwatha Narayan and Chairman of Karnataka Silk Industries Corporation D Basavaraj were present.
