In a joint press conference after the meeting, Kejriwal praised Sood’s various charitable activities during the migrant displacement crisis caused by the coronavirus disease (Covid19) pandemic.
When announcing the post-crisis mentoring program “Desh ke Mentor”, Kejriwal stated that this is India’s largest mentoring program to date, with approximately 3 Lakh young professionals mentoring 10 lakh young professionals in Delhi government schools so that students move towards a bright future. He said that Sonu Sood has agreed to become the brand ambassador for the show.
What’s the “Desh ke mentor” all about?
