Active Bicyclers Association has submitted a memorandum to Yanam MLA Malladi Krishna Rao urging him to take initiative in creating awareness among the public about the uses of cycling.

Association general secretary V. Satyanarayana welcomed the MLA who is on a padayatra from Yanam to Tirumala, here on Thursday.

He stressed on the need for encouraging use of bicycles to reduce pollution levels.

The government should give an allowance of Rs.500 to Rs.1,000 to the staff who use bicycle.

At least once in a week, the motorcycles should not be used, the Yanam MLA said.

Mr. Satyanarayana explained about the association activities and cycle yatras undertaken by its members.
