Gliding motility mechanism also present.

What about gliding motility?

A bacteria can still move by type IV pilli or secreting mucus and be moving along a surface. So flagella do help the bacteria to move, but if they don't have one, it doesn't necessarily mean they can't move.

Bacteria moves about by aid of a long tail like structure known as flagela.

Bacteria move with the help of flagella.

Bacteria move about their environment by means of long, whip-like structures called flagella.

They rotate their flagella like tiny outboard motors to propel themselves through liquid environments. They may also reverse the direction in which their flagella rotate.

The flagella aids the bacteria in movement.

Because the flagella is the part of locomotion or movement.

It true that flagella helps the bacteria to move.
