It may be noted that the cycle rally has been organised for generating awareness towards environmental conservation and prevention of its degradation and during its journey from Guwahati to Sivasagar, it is expected to send across the message to the people.

Synchronising with the event, the chief minister also planted a sapling at the premises of Assam Plantation Crops Development Corporation Limited.

Speaking on the occasion, CM Sarma while thanking Ashok Sarma and others for undertaking the cycle rally said that during the journey, the participants of the rally should spread the message of ills of environmental degradation and the actions people should promote for protecting nature. He also said that in view of the dwindling forest cover, global warming has become a major concern.

In view of this, he called upon the people to plant more saplings and take steps for their survival.
