New Delhi: Actor, philanthropist Sonu Sood, was appointed Delhi government’s brand ambassador for mentorship programme for children. The announcement came after he met chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday.
“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.
“Delhi government has a mentorship programme. Many children don’t know where to go, what to do. We are appealing to people to mentor such children over the phone,” the Delhi CM said.
“The Delhi government has created a platform for all of you to come forward. It is a great opportunity. I feel blessed that I can reach lakhs of students. There is nothing political. As of now, we have not discussed anything political,” Sonu Sood said.
