Reclaiming the streets of Gurgaon for the Aam Aadmi
By Hina in Editors Desk, Lifestyle
Raahgiri Day is a citizen-led movement catalyzed by Embarq India, The Heritage School, I Am Gurgaon, Duplays Gurgaon, and Pedal Yatri Group. Gurgaon Traffic Police has been a great supporter of this event and it’s only with their support that four stretches of roads opposite Vyapar Kendra and Galleria Market, DLF Phase IV, are cordoned off from 7 am to noon every Sunday. In fact, Raahgiri Day was launched at a press conference by Mr. Alok Mittal (Commissioner of Gurgaon Police), who is a regular participant at the event and can be seen walking, cycling, and doing yoga on the Raahgiri loop. According to him, this is a historic event which will help in commissioning permanent pedestrian and bicycle paths in the city.
