On Feb 14, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. The attack resulted in the death of 40 Central Reserve Police Force jawans. The terrorist attack has caused a wave of resentment among people across the country.
In remembrance of soldiers martyred in the attack and to promote World Peace, Rotary Club of Jaipur Central, RID 3054, conducted a cycle rally on Feb 17.
About 25 Rotarians participated in the hour-long rally which was flagged off from the Birla Auditorium in the city by D 3211 PDG K S Sasi Kumar, and the rallyists cycled their way through the Statue Circle, Jai Club on MI Road, Jauhri Bazar, Hawa Mahal and concluded at the auditorium. The Rotarians then paid homage to the martyred soldiers at Amar Jawan Jyoti Smarak.
The rally was organised on the sidelines of ‘Sanidhya’, the two-day district conference that was held at the Birla Auditorium, for which PDG Sasi Kumar was the RIPR.
