Kejriwal said, "Traveling needs to be made safe. There is too much congestion on Delhi roads that leads to pollution in the city and that people need to step forward to improve the condition. Cycling helps all, even a diabetic like me."

A fellow cyclist Puneet lauded the government's efforts and urged it to hold the rally on Sundays.
