Bollywood actor Sonu Sood offers tractor to cash-strapped Andhra Pradesh farmer after his daughters plough field

South India

Sood urged the farmer to protect his daughters and let them focus on their study

The latest beneficiary is a poor farmer in Andhra Pradhesh’s Chittoor district who had to plough his agriculture field using his two daughters as he cannot afford to buy or lease a pair of ox for the work.

Seeing the pathetic condition of the poor family, the philanthropist-actor offered the cash-strapped farmer, Nageswara Rao, a tractor at the earliest.

Sood urged the farmer to protect his daughters and let them focus on their study.

“Tomorrow morning he will have a pair of Ox to plough the fields. Let the girls focus on their education.. Protect them,” Sonu Sood tweeted.

Rao, who hails from Kambhamvaripalle mandal in Chittoor district, reportedly suffered heavy loss in the wake of coronavirus outbreak early this year.

After seeing the video featuring Rao’s daughters ploughing the field carrying the wooden plough on their shoulder, he said that he would send a tractor to the farmer.    

With the works for the next agriculture season has already started, Rao reportedly had no money as all the sources of his income had stopped.

The Bollywood actor, who helped a group of medical students return to Vishakhapatnam from Kyrgyzstan a couple of days ago, personally called the farmer, according to The New Indian Express.

He reportedly realised the pathetic condition of the farmer after talking to Rao briefly.

Following this, Sood tweeted again, “This family doesn’t deserve a pair of ox Ox.. They deserve a Tractor. So sending you one. By evening a tractor will be ploughing your fields. Stay blessed.”

"The actor also does not know Telugu. Sonu Sood assured us (of support) and asked us not to worry,'' Rao was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.

The Bollywood actor extensively helped hundreds of people during the COVID-19 crisis. He helped over 100 workers from Kerala fly to Odisha recently after they were stranded there due to lockdown.

He also helped hundreds of students who got trapped abroad due to the lockdown.
