According to the TSRTC drivers, Ferrying hundreds of passengers in local buses for years was different. Still, nothing compares to the joy of bringing in oxygen tankers from Odisha. These drivers drove back the tankers carrying liquified medical-grade oxygen to the State. Also referred to as gold these days, Oxygen is required to save thousands of lives during the dreadful pandemic.

10 experienced State Road Transport Corporation drivers from the Greater Hyderabad Zone were hand-picked on Thursday night to drive back the tankers loaded with liquid oxygen from Angul in Odisha. They were taken to Begumpet Airport and flown in two Indian Air Force transport airplanes alongside the empty tankers to Odisha on Friday morning.

On Tuesday, the Road transport corporation sent eight more drivers to fly along with empty oxygen tankers to bring in liquid oxygen from Odisha.

According to TSRTC Managing Director Sunil Sharma, in one hour, the drivers were mobilized. These drivers have done a humongous service to society by getting oxygen tankers to save thousands of lives in the city and across the state.M. Babaiah, who usually drives the suburban bus service no. 218 (Koti-Patancheru), brought the liquid oxygen tanker to Hyderabad on Monday evening after driving for more than 20 hours.

His family is ecstatic and proud his father could serve society in such challenging times. P. Narender, another driver who never boarded a flight ever, said that he felt happy to help society in saving human lives during the COVID pandemic.

Narender and Malla Reddy, an RTC driver from Midhani depot, drove back the oxygen tanker to the city, as the tanker company driver reported sick on Thursday. 

All the drivers, who were sent to Odisha to drive oxygen cylinders, had the experience of driving heavy vehicles carrying hazardous substances before joining the Corporation.
