Pedalling continuously for one month, Dr Rakesh and other participants aimed to inspire people to implement Swachh Bharat, especially in rural areas from the North to South corridor.

“It was one of my dreams to pedal down from North to South India. I could see the receptive faces of my Indian brothers and sisters, really Swachh Abhiyan is a wonderful creature,” said Rakesh Mohindra.

He said that one of the objectives of this tour was to raise funds to build 10,000 toilets for girls in schools by raising funds.

“This journey from Kashmir to Kanyakumari will inspire many cyclists in our university and I am sure next time bicycle lovers from the university will also take part in such programmes under the guidance of Mohindra sir,” said Gurjinder Mogi, the founding member of Panjab University Bicycle Lovers club.
