KOCHI:Those who boarded city bus Al-Shifa were in for a surprise on Thursday. “Is a movie-shoot on?” was the first reaction as actor Unni Mukundan sat next to Hibi Eden MLA, with cameras filming them. Some passengers even got down from the ‘shooting set’. 

It was a special service of Al-Shifa operated by KSU activists.   The special service  named ‘Karuynya Yathra’, was an initiative of KSU activists with a mission - to mobilise funds for treatment of Judeson of Palluruthy, who is bed-ridden with spinal chord complications. Judeson was active  in social service till recently by providing bath and food  to the abandoned on streets. KSU state general secretary P Y Shajahan was the driver of the bus while district president Tito Antony appeared as conductor. The service was conducted in Aluva-Konthuruthy route. Though it started from Aluva at 8 am, Karunya Yathra was formally flagged off by  Hibi Eden at Menaka.  KPCC secretary Abdul Muthalib,  OICC Saudi Arabia president Abdul Shukoor became part of Karunya Yathra.  Bus owners U A Abdul Rahim and K A Mahin were also part of the drive.

Hibi Eden said that steps would be taken to provide medical assistance to Judeson.
