People with experience in their professions will be encouraged to mentor groups of children enrolled in Delhi government schools under the 'Desh ke Mentor' initiative, said CM Arvind Kejriwal in a press conference, adding that the initiative will be launched in mid-September.Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Friday that Bollywood actor Sonu Sood will be the brand ambassador for the Delhi government's ambitious 'Desh Ke Mentor' initiative.

Sonu Sood met with Kejriwal in New Delhi a day after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief announced that his government would soon announce "the most progressive" film policy in India, which would give the entertainment industry a huge boost.Kejriwal complimented Sood's multiple charitable activities during the migrant displacement crisis precipitated by the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) epidemic in a joint press conference following their meeting.

In announcing the 'Desh ke Mentor' initiative, which would see about 3 lakh young professionals coaching and mentoring 10 lakh Delhi government school pupils for a bright future in the wake of the crisis, Kejriwal said it is India's largest mentoring programme yet. Sonu Sood has consented to serve as the program's brand ambassador, he said.People with expertise in their fields would be encouraged to mentor groups of youngsters registered in Delhi government schools under the 'Desh ke Mentor' programme, said CM Arvind Kejriwal in a news conference, adding that the initiative will be launched in mid-September.Sonu Sood also lauded Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi chief minister, for his welfare measures, and remarked that the national capital is a perfect example for education. Noting that improvement in social indicators can only be achieved via education, the actor and philanthropist stated that mentors' who can guide children toward a bright future are in high need.

This is an issue that Sood came across while working on the migration crisis, he said, adding that while 20,000 migrant children are now being taught by charitable organisations, the Delhi government project for school children needs to formalise it.During their joint news appearance, however, both the actor and the politician stated that "nothing political" was addressed during their encounter. In response to questions from reporters on the upcoming Punjab elections, Sonu Sood claimed there had been no discussions about political topics thus far.Manish Sisodia, Delhi's deputy chief minister, was spotted at Friday's meeting between Sonu Sood and Kejriwal, according to images published by the AAP on its official Twitter account this morning. Raghav Chadha, an AAP legislator, and Karan Gilhotra, the founder of Plaksha University and a friend of Sood, were also present.
