TN Auto Driver Who Offered Free Rides During Lockdown Urges Govt For Help

During Covid, an autorickshaw driver offered free rides to people. For people who were in need of medical services. During lockdowns, when public and private transport were beyond reach. And he is now facing a severe economic crisis. And he wants the state government’s help.

Humanitarian acts of Karthick

The 37-year-old Autorickshaw driver, Karthick is from Tamil Nadu’s Theni. He has a poster saying “Free for Medicine” on his vehicle. Every time lockdown was put into force in TN, Karthik has been offering free rides to patients. He took a copy of the prescription as proof and took pregnant ladies and patients to the hospital.

It’s more than 2 years now that Karthik is been aiding help. And there are more than 1,000 fairs he can formally request for. When the district collector of Theni learned about this Good Samaritan, he personally met him and appreciated him.

Karthick’s urging help from government.

However, Karthick is now facing a financial plight. And is requesting the state government to help him. He said

“I took a loan and pawned my wife’s jewelry worth Rs 3 lakh. Also, I have been doing all I can to help people during times of crisis. Although my job did not generate much revenue, I continued to provide free services in the hope of earning in the future. I continued to do my job despite other auto drivers making fun of me.”

Additionally, he said

But, at present, the number of passengers boarding the auto has come down. All auto drivers have been affected by the announcement of free travel on city buses and I’m among them. I’ve neither been able to repay the dues for my auto for over 17 months nor been able to get my wife’s jewelry back. Even under this gripping situation and in the midst of a fuel price hike, I have been providing free service to elderly people to visit hospitals. I wish to continue to work for the people and look forward to financial help to get out of my financial crisis. I will submit a petition to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and seek permission to meet him in person.

Hoping that the State government to help Karthik.
