New Delhi, Oct 22: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led a cycle rally here on the capital's first Car Free Day on Thursday, and said travelling needs to be made safe.

He said there was too much congestion on Delhi roads that leads to pollution in the city and that people need to step forward to improve the condition.

Some 84 lakh vehicles ply in Delhi every day, contributing to its chaotic traffic and worsening quality of air.

He cited cycling helps all, even a diabetic like himself.

A fellow cyclist Puneet, who is in his 40s, lauded the government's efforts and urged it to hold the rally on Sundays.
