The CM @OfficeofUT was glad to meet @SonuSood and discussed the work everyone is doing for the people during covid relief. Misunderstandings don’t exist but what does is a commitment to help people. — Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) June 7, 2020
Sena MP Sanjay Raut, in his weekly column in Saamna, had wondered whether the BJP propped up the Bollywood actor to “offer help” to migrant workers from north India stranded in Maharashtra amidst the lockdown, with the political motive to show the Uddhav Thackeray government in poor light.
However, the actor himself quelled the rumours and reaffirmed his willingness to keep helping the needy after meeting with the Thackerays.
My journey with my migrant brothers & sisters has been the most special one. It’s straight from the heart.Right from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari whenever anyone tried to reach me, I’ve put all my efforts to help them reunite with their families & will continue to do so. — sonu sood (@SonuSood) June 7, 2020
Sood facilitated several buses for workers stuck in Mumbai due to the coronavirus-forced nationwide lockdown. The actor has transported workers to far off states such as Karnataka, Bihar, Jharkhand and UP. Recently, the actor launched a toll-free helpline to help migrants in reaching home.
Last weeek, Sood had also met Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to discuss his initiative.
