An 80-year-old who works as a porter at the Lucknow railway station is being widely praised on social media after a video report emerged of him helping workers who are headed home for free.
After the government started Shramik Special trains to transport workers to their home states, Mujibullah Rehman has been helping travellers with their luggage for free at the Charbagh railway station.
According to news agency ANI, Rehman works at the station for around 8-10 hours daily. The video shows Rehman wearing a mask along with the uniform of railway porters, waiting for the trains to arrive on the platform. He can also be seen carrying luggage for passengers.
