Sonu Sood Has An Important Request From The Indian Government
Sonu Sood has been tirelessly working to help everyone across the country. He has been posting videos, urging the government to take certain steps to ensure the safety of people as well. In his recent Instagram video, the actor has urged the Modi government and various charitable organisations to provide free education to children who have lost their parents to Covid.
“Children, as young as 8, 10 and 12 years old, have lost a parent and in some cases, both the parents. I wonder what will happen to their future,” Sood said in his video. He appealed to charitable organisations, who can afford free education to these children, to help such kids.
The actor further added, “I would like to request the government, the state government, central government or whichever institutes that are trying to help, that there should be a rule that whosoever has lost family members during Covid-19, the education of their kids, from school to college, be it in a government school or private school, should be free of cost.” He captioned the video as, “Need to come together for every individual who’s lost a loved one in this pandemic.”

Earlier Sood had even shared a video requesting the government to cancel the CBSE board exams 2021. He said that he does not think that the students are ready to sit for the exams amid the prevailing circumstances. He shared the examples of countries like Saudi Arabia and Mexico, where exams were cancelled despite the low number of Covid-19 cases.
Sonu Sood was earlier honoured with the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) prestigious SDG Special Humanitarian Action Award. The actor joined the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie, David Beckham, Emma Watson, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas and Nicole Kidman who have been honoured with Humanitarian Award by different UN bodies.
