Bokaro DC launches ‘Smile you are in Bokaro’

RNS: Bokaro Deputy Commissioner today launched a unique initiative ‘Smile you are in Bokaro’ and rushed to his office by droving cycle from his residence. Bokaro Steel Plant CEO PK Singh, Bokaro SP P Murugun, DDC Ravi Ranjan Mishra, AC B K Gupta, DPLR PN Mishra along with other districts administrative officials were also participated in the move and rushed their offices by droving cycles too.
The movement ‘Muskuraaiye Aap Bokaro Mein Hain’ launched by DC Bokaro is the use of cycle, resorting to car pool or becoming pedestrian in order to commute to offices, markets and parks.
In order to protect the environment and give impetus to the ‘FIT INDIA’ campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bokaro DC Mukesh Kumar launched this initiative and issued advisory to the government offices in particular and common people at large to refrain from using vehicles in a regular manner.
While launching the initiative DC appealed all to refrain from the use of a vehicle on every Saturday of the week. “At least on Saturday we can use cycles or be a pedestrian to start with the movement,” he said.
This movement has several benefits too, firstly the consumption of fuel will be less, which means the limited amount of fuel in the earth will last longer, said Kumar.
“Secondly the environment will be much cleaner and the pollution will lessen to a greater extent and thirdly the less consumption of fuel at government offices will ease out the burden on the government exchequer to some extent,” he said.
“The most thing is that the dream of our Prime Minister to remain fit will be realised if we use less of motorized life and remain active. The use of cycle or walking to the office will have a charismatic positive effect on the health if adopted for a larger duration,” added Kumar.
Cycling is a healthy, low-impact exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children to older adults. It is also fun, cheap and good for the environment, he said.
“If someone cannot use a bicycle in any worst circumstances, then use the cars or motorbikes by sharing with others so that fuel consumptions can be minimized along with pollution,” added DC.
This is second in the series of initiatives undertaken by the Deputy Commissioner under the movement. Earlier, the ban on plastic items in government offices has been done and an appeal has been issued to the public at large to ban plastic completely from their life.
