Traders demand policy for electric-cycles in city
NEW DELHI: Delhi government is planning to make the electric Cycle Policy for national capital. Several representatives of the Cycle Industry trader delegation called on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday at his official residence. The delegation demanded a policy for the electric cycles (E-cycles) from Delhi government for the promotion of E-cycles in the city.
The CM was positive to their demand and promised them to work on it. The representatives also discussed the use of cycles and how the number of cycle users is quite low to the number of motorbikes being used. They also showed the Chief Minister an electric-bicycle. The Chief Minister also took a ride of the electric-bicycle and appreciated it.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal went to Burari to hand over a cheque of Rs one crore to the family of martyr fireman late Vijendar Pal Singh. "We passed the policy of Rs 1 crore for the family of the martyrs when we came to power. However, the policy was trashed by the BJP's Central Government. I said don't do politics over martyrs, we can fight on other issues but this policy is for the martyrs. But they didn't buzz and refused to pass the policy. I even wrote to the PM and requested him," the CM said.
