The help came after video clip went viral on Twitter wherein a tomato farmer in Madanapalle in Chittoor district was seen using both his daughters as oxen to plough the field as he could not afford to hire an ox after suffering heavy losses earlier this year due to the lockdown. Their plight moved many social media following which the actor stepped in to help.
In his instant reaction, Sood promised a pair of ox to the farmer but later said the family deserved a tractor. “So sending you one. By evening a tractor will be ploughing your fields. Stay blessed,” Sood, said in a tweet.
Fulfilling his promise, a new tractor was delivered to the elated farmer Nageswara Rao at his Mahalrajupalle village by Sunday night.
Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, who belongs to Chittoor district, hailed the actor.
“Spoke with @sonusood ji and applauded him for his inspiring effort to send a tractor to Nageswara Rao’s family in Chittoor district. Moved by the plight of the family, I have decided to take care of the education of the two daughters and help them pursue their dreams,” Naidu said in a tweet.
Rao’s elder daughter completed her Intermediate while the second one passed Class 10.
Their father Nageswara Rao, who used to run a tea stall in Madanapalle Mandal for the past 20 years was left with no source of income after the lockdown decided to return to his native village Rajuvaripalle to do farming.
