Many common people have come out in support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to curb black money.
One among them is Sadiq, autorickshaw driver, gives a free ride to people going to banks for currency exchange, in support of Modi’s initiative.
Sadiq drives auto from past six years. He travels around Munduru, Naithadi, Panjala and other villages of Putturu Taluk in Dakshina Kannada district. He has tied a banner to his auto stating “Free ride for those going to bank”.
“I’m a fan of Modi. I am extending my support to his good works by giving a free ride to people going to banks. I know what Modi is doing is large and my service is a small gesture. I am extending this service for three days from Wednesday. I require ₹ 300 to refill the gas every day. The Modi government has also cut the gas price,” he said smiling.
However, his bottom line was that “I have not seen the new currency of ₹2000 denomination so far.”
