Sonu Sood named brand ambassador for AAP govt’s ‘Desh ke mentors’ programme

Bollywood actor Sonu Sood believes his journey of setting up online job portal Pravasi Rozgar that offered to migrant labourers amounted to 'education'

Bollywood for education? Well, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi seems to think the industry is a good teacher or influence on children. It has named Bollywood actor Sonu Sood as the brand ambassador for the ‘Desh ke mentors’ programme on 27 August. The Delhi chief minister said under this initiative students will be guided in making their career choices.

Detailing the initiative, Kejriwal appealed to “educated” people to come forward and mentor students of backgrounds from the city studying in government schools. “Some of the students in government schools come from very poor backgrounds and there are very few people to guide them. We are appealing to educated people to become mentors for these children. Sonu Sood will be our brand ambassador for the programme,” Kejriwal said in the presser.

“We are thankful to Sonu Sood for taking out time from his busy schedule. He is an inspiration for the entire country. Thousands reach out to him for help. This is a sort of miracle that he has been doing what so many governments have not been able to do. We had a long chat about his work and shared the work of the Delhi government with him,” Kejriwal said.

Sonu Sood said, “Today, I have been given an opportunity to mentor lakhs of students. There is no greater service than guiding students. I am sure together we can and we will.” 

Kejriwal and Sonu Sood both said they discussed no politics. “We just discussed this programme and no political discussions were held,” Kejriwal told reporters. 

Actor Sonu Sood shared his journey of setting up online portal ‘Pravasi Rozgar’ that offered to migrant labourers. Besides the chief minister, the state’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was present in the meeting.

While interacting with the Chief Minister, the actor described his experience of helping the migrant laborers in sending them back home in the lockdown last year and how he maintained a database of 7,50,000 migrants and reconnected with them to start his portal that offered 3,00,000 to the migrants.
