Members from the Tamil Nadu Udavikaram Association for the Welfare of the Differently Abled and concerned citizens symbolically went on their tricycles and crutches to the office of the Commissioner for the Welfare of Differently Abled in K.

One man got off his tricycle and crawled on the road, to demonstrate the poor state of Chennai civic infrastructure. Video: G. Ananthakrishnan
