Good response for 'Cycle To Work' campaign, Mysore
Monday was a very special day for MUDA employees, Considering the number of senior and middle rank officials who reached their offices riding bicycles.
Many of the top officials didn't use their vehicles saving the fuel. 77 of them pedalled to work including DC P S Vastrad, ZP CEO Ajay Nagbushan, deputy transport commissioner C P Narayanaswamy, additional DC Naga Nayak and MUDA commissioner C G Betsurmath.
Those who came to the MUDA office on bicycles were welcomed with a smart full-arm salute by the security guard.
Interestingly, none of the 200-plus staff attached to MUDA used their vehicles-they either cycled their way to the workplace or came by walk. Some of them used public transport.
The Commissioner Dr. C.G. Betsurmath pedaled a distance of seven kms from his house in Kuvempunagar, with his laptop and files tucked behind in the carrier.
