Bihar girl cycling for 745 miles with her injured father impresses Ivanka Trump

indica News Bureau-
A 15-year-old Jyoti Kumar carried her injured father to her home in Darbhanga in Bihar from Gurugram has impressed Ivanka Trump.
Jyoti cycled for 7 days and covered a distance of 1200 km (745.65 miles) to reach her home from Gurugram.

Ivanka praised Jyoti and said: “beautiful feat of endurance and love has captured the imagination of the Indian people and the cycling federation”.

However, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah was not impressed with what Ivanka said and commented: “Her poverty and desperation are being glorified as if Jyoti rode 1,200 km for the thrill of it. Government failed her, that’s hardly something to trumpet as an achievement.”

Jyoti and her father were living in Gurugram and her father Mohan Paswan was injured in an accident during the lockdown, leaving him unable to go home.

Following this, on May 10, Jyoti left along with her father from Gurugram on a bicycle for Darbhanga. She arrived home on May 16.

People were stunned to learn about the plight, as well as courage displayed by Jyoti. Even Ivanka Trump was impressed and went on to share the news related to Jyoti.
