Sonu Sood to help JEE, NEET aspirants struck in flood hit areas of Assam, Bihar & Gujarat


Guwahati: Everyone is aware of how actor Sonu Sood has extended his help and support to each and every layman during the pandemic crisis.

From arranging buses for migrants to buying flight tickets for needy to reach home, Sonu Sood has stood like a solid rock.

Now, the actor on Friday has extended help to students who will appear for Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) and National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), scheduled to be held in September.

Takin to his Twitter Sonu Sood said, “Incase #JEE_NEET happens: To all the students who will be appearing & are struck in flood hit areas of Bihar, Assam & Gujrat. Do let me know ur areas of travel. Trying to make ur travel arrangements to reach ur examination centres. No one should miss their exam bec of resources”

Sood made this offer while reacting to a viral video posted by journalist Nidhi Razdan in which a young lad complains about the difficulties faced by the students who have to appear for the NEET-JEC exams amid the ongoing pandemic and the raging floods. “I am standing by you. If you are stuck anywhere, let me know your areas of travel. I will help you reach your examination centres,” Soon wrote in a subsequent tweet.


While the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) is scheduled to be held on September 13, engineering entrance exam JEE-Main has been planned from September 1-6. Around 8.58 lakh candidates have registered for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)-Main and 15.97 lakh have registered for the NEET. The exams have been deferred twice in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Thursday made it clear that they would go ahead with the entrance examinations as the “academic year cannot be wasted.”
