The gradual rise in petrol prices has hit the common man hard with many criticising the government over the increase rate. Some have also called the government to cut down the taxes. Recently, a petrol pump in Karur district of Tamil Nadu came up with a novel idea to give away petrol free-of-cost.
Parents of school-going children can avail the offer if they are able to recite Thirukkural couplets. The petrol pump, which is owned by Valluvar agencies near Nagampalli village in Aravakurichi introduced this offer on January 16 to mark Thiruvalluvar Day.
The offer is available for Class I to IX students, who must accompany their parents to the fuel station. Participants must submit the couplets in writing. They can take part in the contest multiple times but must submit a different couplet each time.
