Actor Sonu Sood has been appointed the brand ambassador of the Punjab Government’s Covid vaccination programme.
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh made the announcement a day after meeting Sonu, who called on him at his residence.
“There is no one more ideally suited to inspire and influence people to take the vaccine. There is a lot of hesitancy among people here in Punjab. Sonu’s popularity among them, and his exemplary role in helping tens of thousands of migrants reach safely home since the pandemic broke out last year, will help counter their reservations,” said the CM.
“When people hear this ‘Punjab da puttar’ talk about the benefits of vaccine, and how safe and essential it is, they will believe him. Because they trust him,” he added.
