It is semi-true; as in this article; the incident (which happened in September 2008) involved the failure of the nosewheel steering; this would have meant that a tug could not be used without rsik of damage. The people pushing the aircraft are all airport employees (not passengers) and if you look closely you can see that some of them are guiding the nosewheel.
