New Delhi, Nov 11 Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the nation by storm on Tuesday night when he declared the Rs 500, 1,000 notes as invalid. His decision led to panic among those who were holding huge amounts of unaccounted cash.
While this was a move towards cleaning up black money, let us also not forget a few individuals who are doing their bit to clean up the system. Before we tell the story, let us stand up for a minute and applaud this cab driver who did his bit to fight black money.
Viplav Arora, a resident of Delhi had the best ride of his life in an Ola cab. Arora booked a cab from his home to the railway station on November 10. He had all Rs 500 notes in his wallet. He decided to pay by using Ola money.
However the bill amount was a bit above the Ola money he had. With no ATM working and Rs 500 notes in his wallet, Arora found himself in a spot of bother. The Ola driver Vipin Kumar offered him a discount saying that this is his share of contribution towards the development of the nation.
Arora took to his Facebook to share what folllowed. " Reply of driver at that time not only earns respect for himself but also I am writing this post because of that."
The driver replied, " " Sir baaki k paise rehne dijiye , do paise kam kama lenge ,thodi si takleef hogi or vo to sab ko ho rhi hai, ab sarkaar ke faisley ka samaan krte hue , desh ki tarakki me ye hamara yogdaan hi samjh lenge. Aap befikr hokar apni train lijiye." (Sir, don't worry about the rest of the money. If I earn a little less, it will trouble me, no doubt, but many others too are facing problems. Consider this as my contribution to the nation. You do not worry sir, go and board the train.)
"Salute to that driver #vipinkumar and he proved the PM Modi quote in which he said - Common man of India always ready to face hardship in country's interest," Arora also wrote.
