Elderly woman clashed with conductor for buying tickets
A video of a very elderly woman is going viral on social media. The video is from inside a government bus in Tamil Nadu. In this video, this elderly woman is seen arguing with the bus conductor. Usually such arguments with the conductor in buses happen because the passengers accuse them of overcharging. But, the story here is not only completely different, but unbelievable. When political parties are being accused of promoting ‘Rewari culture’ for votes in the country, the Supreme Court of the country is also strict about it. The self-respect of that elderly woman is like a slap on the leadership of such leaders.
Old lady not allowed free travel
Actually, this video is going viral because of this. Because, in this the elderly lady is arguing because she is not ready to travel for free in any case. The video is being told of Coimbatore city of Tamil Nadu. The conversation appears to be in Tamil, but it is not difficult to understand what an elderly woman is not ready to accept after all.
‘I don’t want to leave ‘OC’
This lady wants to buy proper ticket for her journey by paying money to the conductor. He is not ready to travel for free under any circumstances. The woman is said to be saying that ‘I don’t want to go through the OC (making fun of freebies)’. In fact, in Tamil Nadu, women have got the facility of free travel in ordinary government buses with white boards. This was promised by the DMK during the elections. But, this free travel of the government is not acceptable to this elderly woman at all.
The conductor explained a lot to the elderly, but he did not listen
This video has been made by a co-traveller in a government bus running between Madhukarai to Palathurai, in which this long debate caught everyone’s attention. In the video, the conductor is seen asking a male passenger to buy a ticket. Then the old lady reached him and asked to give the ticket and started paying for it. Initially the conductor refused to take money from him and explained to him that he did not need to pay for the journey. But, the woman clearly said that she will not travel ‘OC’ (free).

The elderly woman agreed only after buying a ticket
Eventually, the conductor gave up in front of the elderly woman. He took Rs 15 as fare from the woman and gave her a ticket. The same video is going viral on social media and people are appreciating the self respect of that elderly man. The Twitter handle of which we shared the video has been shared by @dr_abimanyus and the user claimed to be a local BJP leader.
