BHUBANESWAR: Battery-operated cars will be made available for senior citizens and differently-abled persons on the Janpath during Patha Utsav this Sunday. Sound and smoke-free vehicles will be provided by India Craft Centre free of cost.
As a significant number of senior citizens and PwDs took part in the second edition of the street event, the authorities have decided to make a provision of non-polluting vehicles for the needy, sources said.
The organisers will be recording opinion pieces from participants and upload the same on social media pages of Patha Utsav. ‘’The participants will be tagged in their respective videos to identify the events and recollect the moments spent at the street festival,’’ a senior official of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.
The activity corner will have a separate segment for yoga training by AYUSH (Department of Health and Family Welfare) this weekend. To observe Mountain Day on December 11, painting competitions on nature will be organised during Patha Utsav.
Musical programmes will be held as usual on two ends of the venue. BMC will deploy additional security personnel along with forces of Commissionerate of Police and Fire Services.
