On the occasion of the Gandhi Jayanti, Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh RK Mathur on Friday flagged off a 15 kilometers cycle rally and a simultaneous cleanliness drive.
Mathur felicitated local cyclists and winner of multiple gold medals, Lekzes Angmo, for her achievement.
He also felicitated the sanitisation staff and said that to achieve a healthy society, cleanliness is of paramount importance, and the administration and people will work hand-in-hand to turn Ladakh into one of the cleanest destinations.
Globally, Gandhi’s birth anniversary is celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence. Several events were held in India and across the world to mark the occasion.
