Auto driver offers free rides to patients outside Apollo Hospital for CM Jayalalithaa's sake
Chennai, Oct 08 (ANI): When Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in Chennai in the last week of September, G. Kumar (38), an admirer of the AIADMK supremo, was upset for more reasons than one. As crowds started thronging the hospital, police made sure the auto rickshaw that the stands outside the hospital gate was relocated for security reasons, and with that, Sukumar was forced to go home with his vehicle. On Friday, he was back: with two AIADMK-green flexboards attached to the right and back of his autorickshaw, Sukumar has started offering free rides to Apollo patients. He says two reasons motivated him: "This is my way of thanking Amma and praying for her recovery. Also, I saw that patients were being inconvenienced because of lack of autorickshaws," he said.
