Sonu Sood took it upon himself to return Maharashtra-stuck migrant workers to their respective homes despite the ongoing nationwide lockdown.
The 46-year-old actor on Saturday, after arranging a batch of buses for migrants heading to Karnataka, arranged more buses for workers belonging to Uttar Pradesh, after obtaining due permission from the state government.
Sonu has said he wants the activity to continue.
These busses allegedly left for various parts of Uttar Pradesh from Wadala, including Lucknow, Hardoi, Pratapgarh and Siddharthnagar, as well as states like Jharkhand and Bihar. Sonu was there too to say farewell to the migrants.
Sonu said the plight of migrant workers makes him feel pained.
“It has been an extremely emotional journey for me as my heart is pained to see these migrants walking on the streets away from their homes,” he shared.
Notably, thousands of migrant workers across India have faced the wrath of the lockdown caused by coronavirus. Rendered unemployed, many walked on roads and railroad tracks to get home.
