District Collector N. Yuvaraj, Andhra University Vice-Chancellor G.S.N. Raju, Joint Collector J. Nivas and Municipal Commissioner Pravin Kumar led a bicycle rally by citizens on Wednesday. The rally was taken out to create awareness about the smart city challenge.

A little girl-skater flagged off the rally at Ramakrishna Beach.

The Collector appealed to people to participate in the smart city challenge by filling the questionnaire online on mygov.in portal orwww.yourvoiceyouvizag.com.

Visakhapatnam is among the 98 cities selected in the first round and if its proposals get through, it will be among the first 20 to be picked up in the first year. The selection will get it Rs.500 crore as a grant from the Union Government and an equal amount from the State government and GVMC.
