In a bid to promote and raise mindfulness about its ‘Desh Ka Mentors’ program, the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has roped in Bollywood actor and “good samaritan” Sonu Sood as the brand ambassador of the project. Known for his big-heartedness and social service to the needy, especially amid the pandemic, the actor has become a well-known face today.
The Desh Ka Mentors program is envisioned for students and aims to guide in making their career choices, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday. “Some of the students in government schools come from very poor backgrounds and there are very few people to guide them. We are appealing to educated people to become mentors for these children. Sonu Sood is our brand ambassador for the programme,” Kejriwal said.
This platform of ‘Desh Ke Mentor’ is such that anyone in this country can become the mentor of 1 to 10 students and guide them. Sonu has underscored the need for mentorship, falling back on his own experience of how in his days as a young adult there were just two professions to consider, medicine and engineering, and he went for the latter.
“This is a platform for you to do something for the country,” said Sood, appealing to people to join the mentorship platform. Well, the relationship between AAP and Sonu Sood is still evolving and we are happy that Sonu is now part of AAP party.
