Kundapur (Karnataka), May 27: As Modi government completed two years and moved into third year, to mark celebration, an auto driver from Udupi district's Kundapur taluk only charges Rs 1 as minimum charge till 5Km.

When Modi regime completed a year and stepped into second year, Prabhu again announced this auto rikshaw ride bonanza for the people of Kundapur. "Modi has been working in the direction of developing the nation. In order to popularise his efforts I reiterated the ride concept," Prabhu said.
For a question on are you satisfied too with the Modi's work all through his second year of government, he answered obviously. In comparison with previous governments, Narendra Modi is doing well. This is the reason why Prabhu is offering the ride yet again. But this time with a day extended to make it 3 days since government is turning up to third year.
To substantiate Prabhu's claims of Modi's good governance, he said there are no allegations of corruption so far against the government. It can be seen, Modi toiling for the betterment of nation. He is working for the people. Not all can change in two years or three years. "We have to give more time to Modi to bring a massive turn around.
