Sonu Sood on rift with DM of Orissa “we did  arrange it, but not to be one-up on the administration”

Recently, Sonu Sood was acussed by the District Magistrate of Orissa of making fame from helping people amid pandemic on twitter. The DM wrote “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. @CMO_Odish.”

To this tweet Sonu Sood replied “Sir, We never claimed that we approached you, it’s the needy who approached us and 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. Have DM you his contact details. Jai hind.”

In an interview recently, Sonu Sood talked about the rift. He said “The  denial (of the  effort  made to get  a hospital bed for  the Ganjam citizen) came from a responsible government  officer.  It was  therefore something I had to take  seriously.  I did not want any miscommunication or any misunderstanding with the Administration. I am sure they are  doing their utmost to help the  people of their district. However  this  person did approach us with an SOS  for a hospital  bed. And we did  arrange it, but not to be one-up on the Administration.”
