New Delhi: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut lashed out at Bollywood actor Sonu Sood for helping the migrant workers.

He targeted the actor in his ‘Saamna’ Editorial on Sunday.

Targeting the praise that the actor has been receiving for his act, Raut wrote that during the lockdown period, a new “Mahatma” named Sonu Sood has come all of a sudden. He wrote, “It is being said that Sonu Sood transported millions of migrant laborers to his home in other states,” and the Governor of Maharashtra has also praised “Mahatma Sood” for his work.

According to Sanjay Raut, this suggests that nothing is being done by the state governments and the Central government, which is in itself somewhat odd seeing as it is Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray who is currently the CM of Maharashtra. In the editorial, Raut questioned the Bollywood actor as to where is he getting the buses from during the lockdown period. He also questioned that “When the states are not allowing to take any migrant workers, where are the migrants going?” Launching a further attack, Raut wrote that the Bollywood actor “may soon meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and become the celebrity manager of Mumbai.”
