Shiv Sena Slams Sonu Sood, BJP Leader Ram Kadam Retaliates
BJP leader Ram Kadam has criticized the statement, calling it "condemnable" and "unfortunate"
Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has been winning heart and praise due to his humanitarian efforts during the lockdown. However, the actor has been blasted by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut who claimed that Sonu Sood would ‘soon meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and become Mumbai’s celebrity manager’.
Writing in the Saamana Editorial, the Rajya Sabha MP targeted Sonu’s philanthropist work. He wrote, “It is being said that Sonu Sood transported millions of migrant laborers to his home in other states”. He also added that the Governor of Maharashtra had praised “Mahatma Sood” for his work.
However, Sanjay Raut next raised a lot of questions regarding the work being done by Sonu Sood. “When the states are not allowing to take any migrant workers, where are the migrants going?” he asked.
BJP leader Ram Kadam has criticized the statement, calling it “condemnable” and “unfortunate”. He also stated that Sena’s statement reflects that the government has failed in tackling the COVID-19 crisis in the state.
Addressing the comments in a video statement he said, “The State government won’t do the work which is to be done by them. And when that work is being done by an actor like Sonu Sood who is on roads and helping people with his own money, what is the Shiv Sena leaders’ issue? You won’t do your work, and when someone does it, you will make false charges against them. This is unfortunate.”
He also put out a series of tweets blasting Sanjay Raut for giving a political twist to the relief work being done by Sonu Sood.
