Millet Kranti Cycle Rally

Millets have been an integral part of our diet for centuries. In addition to a plethora of health benefits, millets are also good for the environment with low water and input requirements. With the view to create awareness to increase production and consumption of millets, at the behest of the Government of India, United Nations declared 2023 as the International Year of Millets. To commemorate this, MyGov is hosting various interactive activities around Millets, throughout the country.
Inspired by our Prime Minister, In the "International Millet Year 2023", Nathuli Mahila Sashaktikaran Sanstha in association with Uttarakhand State Council for Child Welfare conducted, India’s 1st longest "Millet Kranti Cycle Rally" from 14th to 17th Mar 2023 (4 Days) which covered 300 kms of distance from Dehradun to Mundoli village in district Chamoli of Uttarakhand. Many supporters joined hands for this Noble cause.

This Rally connected and created awareness on the subject, among Children, Parents, Farmers, Women Groups, Public Representatives, Officials, Social groups, from Dehradun, Tehri, Pauri, Rudraprayag and Chamoli Districts. The rally was started from CM house Dehradun to Mundoli by Shri Ganesh Joshi, Agriculture Minister, Govt of Uttarakhand.
On the occasion he underlined that, “Millets are a good source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, and play a vital role not just in maintaining the health of millions, but also in maintaining the ecological balance and economic security of India. Millets with low gluten and low glycemic index are healthy alternatives for those undergoing celiac disorders and diabetes. In other words millets are beneficial for consumers, the cultivators as well as the climate and therefore we must understand that millets can help us fight nutrition insecurity and climate crisis.”
Police & Health Dept. played a important role in success of this rally.
