Sonu Sood Coronavirus Migration Crisis:
‘This is something close to my heart and I will give it my all‘: These were Bollywood actor Sonu Sood’s words when he was talking about his mission to send migrant workers home, during this never-ending worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
Apart from helping migrant workers reach their home, Sonu has also helped feed thousands of underprivileged families and provided meal kits to migrants in Bhiwandi, Mumbai during the holy month of Ramadan. In the past, Sonu had also donated gym equipment and bicycles to the Pulwama attack survivors and also helped India’s various acid attack survivors and even backed our Paralympic athletes.
Sonu just a few days back arranged 10 buses for migrant workers that took them back home to Gulbarga, Karnataka. Now, this Dabangg antagonist has further organized multiple bus services to take migrant workers back to their home in Uttar Pradesh.
Sonu is doing all these good deeds without breaking any law. He took extra precautions and after several efforts, managed to get official permissions from the UP state government to send migrants to their hometowns, amidst the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Revealing details about all these happenings, a source was quoted saying,
“Helping him in the endeavour to help hundreds of migrants meet their families is Sood’s good friend Neeti Goel, who’s also a part of this initiative. Multiple buses left Wadala, Mumbai on May 15 to various parts of UP including Lucknow, Hardoi, Pratapgarh, and Siddharthnagar as well as to cities in Jharkhand and Bihar. Sonu was present to bid goodbye to the migrants and even made arrangements for their meals.”
Sonu also revealed,
“It has been an extremely emotional journey for me, as my heart pains to see these migrants staying away from their homes and trying to walk all the way home. I will continue sending migrants home until the last migrant reunites with his family and loved ones. This is something close to my heart and I will give it my all.”
