A Congress leader, on Thursday, shared a video showing a woman from Madhya Pradesh who was apparently stuck in Ukraine singing praises of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood for lending a helping hand.
Ajay Singh, a Madhya Pradesh Congress leader, tweeted the video in which the woman who hails from Rewa district of MP is heard talking about the actor’s philanthropy.
“Hello, I am Shrishti Singh. We boarded a train. Sonu Sood’s team has helped us hugely…. It guided us at every moment. Look how many students are sitting around—all are Indians,” the woman, who seemed to be somewhere near Ukraine’s borders, said.
“The train is packed with Indians. Sonu Sood is guiding us every moment. He worked day in and day out (to help the stranded Indian nationals),” she said.
The woman’s praise for the actor came at a time when the Indian government has launched ‘operation Ganga’ to rescue the Indians stranded in Ukraine amid the Russian invasion, and deputed four central ministers for overseeing the evacuation from eastern Europe.
मुझे यूक्रेन में पढ़ने वाली रीवा जिले के खटकरी की बिटिया सृष्टि सिंह का वीडियो मिला है| श्री सोनू सूद और उनकी टीम यूक्रेन पर हुए हमले में फंसे भारतीय छात्रों से निरंतर सम्पर्क बनाकर उनकी मदद कर रही है| जरुरतमंदों की सहायता के लिए श्री सोनू सूद और उनकी टीम को बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद| pic.twitter.com/DOHLayyQiQ— Ajay Singh (@ASinghINC) March 2, 2022
The Congress leader in his tweet also congratulated Sood and his team for their work.
Sood had earlier come in for praise when he helped scores of migrant labourers who were trying to return to their home states during the coronavirus-induced lockdown in 2020.
