During the ongoing lockdown, the law enforcement forces are working to keep the roads and highways deserted. They are checking when the vehicle comes out. However, some insulting incidents are happening in the case of rickshaws. The rickshaw is being left upside down. And some such pictures are spreading on social media and as a result many people are expressing their sorrow for the rickshaw pullers.
However, law enforcement says rickshaws are prohibited on the highway.
Here is the link to the viral video
Just when people are speaking out against rickshaws in the lockdown, a group is promoting old videos to provoke the issue. Netizens can’t even verify that video. A campaign has been launched in which a traffic policeman and a poor rickshaw puller have been fighting for control of the rickshaw for a long time.
The traffic police want to snatch the rickshaw, but the driver will not give it in any way. Naturally the poor man is getting sympathy and the traffic police administration is on the verge of criticism. But the video is at least two years old. Uploaded to a YouTube channel two years ago.
An Internet user says that people’s perceptions are gradually declining. If you watch the video, it is clear that no one has a mask on their face, the bus is moving. It is understood that the video before the epidemic, even if you do not shake your head.
But why the old video? A group of netizens answered this question. Says, a group of people always try to take advantage of the public reaction. These are the instigators.
