Chief Minister Pema Khandu today met inspirational cyclist, Bhausaheb Bhawar, who is in the state on his unique journey on cycle across the country for the fifth time. Felicitating Bhausaheb at his office, Khandu welcomed the cyclist to the state and expressed optimism that his messages on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and national integration would reach to the remotest of places.
Bhausaheb, who is travelling across the state on his cycle since last few days, informed the Chief Minister that he has already covered difficult places like Tawang, Aalo, Yingkiong and reached up to Jairampur in the east on his cycle.
‘It would be impossible to express in words the dedication and single-minded obsession of Bhausaheb to leave aside the worldly pleasures and set out on a bicycle journey alone to spread his messages to the remotest of places and meet unknown faces. I salute his courage and determination to be atop a cycle for the last 25 years and there’s no stopping him!’ the CM said in a message of appreciation.
He hailed the energy and determination of Bhausaheb to travel across Arunachal Pradesh on cycle when journeys by vehicle itself is tough and tiresome.
‘It is our privilege to receive Bhausaheb in Arunachal Pradesh over the years on his unique journey. On behalf of the state government and the people of Arunachal Pradesh, I congratulate him for travelling on cycle to places such as Tawang, Yingkiong, Tezu, Aalo, Jairampur, etc. By no means it’s a mean achievement!’ CM Khandu added while wishing him success in his noble endeavour.
Bhausaheb informed that with his job done in Arunachal Pradesh, he would be cycling to Guwahati and start his unique journey to the South of the country in the next phase.
