New Delhi: Poular Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has been named the brand ambassador by Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi for the ‘Desh ka mentors’ programme on Friday. Delhi Chief Minister said under this initiative students will be guided in making their career choices.
Talking about the initiative, Kejriwal appealed to educated people to come forward and mentor students of poor backgrounds from the city studying in government schools. “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 will be our brand ambassador for the programme,” Kejriwal said in the presser.
“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.
