Mumbai/ Berhampur: Bollywood actor Sonu Sood who turned as a real hero during the Covid pandemic has landed into a controversy over his claim to have arranged a bed in a hospital for a Covid patient in Berhampur.
On Monday, the Ganjam collector shared the tweet of Sonu Sood and said, “ “We don’t received (sic) any communication from @SoodFoundation or @SonuSood. Requested patient is in Home isolation and stable. No bed issues @BrahmapurCorp is monitoring it.”
Sharing the WhatsApp chat with the patient who had approached the actor for the help to arrange the bed, Sonu replied back that, “Sir, We never claimed that we approached you, it’s the needy who approached us & we arranged the bed for him, attached are the chats for your reference. Ur office is doing a great job & u can double check that we had helped him too. DM you his contact details. Jai hind.”
Appreciating the noble works of the actor, the collector responded that, “Our intention was not to criticise your system. We have our own TEAM GANJAM to ensure bed availability for patient which work 24*7. Still it’s our duty to investigate if any issues about bed availability. That’s why we cleared the facts. You and your Organization doing great job.”
