Not only this, Sonu Sood provided meal kits to the workers too. Sonu told IANS, “I can’t express in words how it feels to see the people in distress, finally set out on their journey home comfortably. I had been reading a lot on how the migrants were walking hundreds of kilometres along with their families sans food or water. It really disturbed me and I could no longer just sit and sulk about it. I decided to do my bit as a fellow countryman and as a human, of course, by taking government permission too.”
“The visuals of migrants, especially babies and the elderly walking a deadly distance with bruises on their feet, really made me feel very sad. It becomes necessary to spring into action at times rather than just cribbing and simply feeling bad for them. I am extremely happy that I could help the migrants in my own way and I shall continue to help as much as I can,” Sonu said.
“Basic transport is all that they are asking so that they can return home, to their loved ones at a crucial time. Also, I would really like to thank my good friend Neeti Goel for being a part of this initiative,” he added.
