People from different walks of life, including doctors, engineers and artists, will take part in the rally to be flagged off on March 22 from Dilli Haat.

The rally will cover 2,700km and cross Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh before reaching Patna on March 28.

According to the organisers, the fleet carrying displays on themes, including the state's heritage, tourism, women empowerment, agriculture and festivals, will meander through the roads of Delhi and reach Gurgaon on the first day.

“Other halts include Haridwar, Dehradun, Mussoorie, Kanpur, and Varanasi, where the team will talk to local people and distribute Bihari sweets,” the organiser said.
