An autorickshaw driver is offering rides for just one rupee to celebrate the third anniversary of Narendra Modi’s BJP government.

Mangalore Modi admirer S Satish Prabhu said he will be offering passengers the special discount for travel up to five kilometers for four days starting on May 26.

The 44-year-old placed a poster on the rear of his vehicle announcing: “On the occasion of the fourth year of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government, the autorickshaw fare has been reduced to Re1 for up to 5km.”

However, this is not the first time he has expressed his love for Modi; he celebrated the prime minister’s victory in 2014 by slashing his fares.

The Times of India quoted him as saying, “Modi has been doing a lot of good work across the country. I thought I should thank him for that and I chose to do that by slashing fares for commuters. The one-rupee ride will help commuters, especially the middle class, save some money.”
