Cooch Behar youth completes journey of 10,000 km on cycle
A 21-year-old youth from Cooch Behar, who had cycled for over 10,000km and covered 19 states while imparting messages of peace, amity, integrity and education for all, was felicitated by the Trinamul Congress upon the completion of the journey on Wednesday.
Nikhil Sarkar, a third-year under-graduate student of Cooch Behar BT & Evening College who cycled for around 100 days, said: “I had started my journey on October 11 last year and today (Wednesday), I returned to Cooch Behar. I have travelled to states like Sikkim, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh and also covered the entire Bengal during the journey.”
Trinamul leader Partha Pratim Roy, who is also the chairman of the North Bengal State Transport Corporation and his party colleague Rahul Roy, felicitated Sarkar on the bank of the Sagardighi, a waterbody located in the heart of Cooch Behar town.
“Sarkar, a resident of Gayergari village, has made the Cooch Behar district proud. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours,” said Partha Pratim Roy.
