Actor Sonu Sood, who is being the Good Samaritan in these difficult times, has donned that hat again. And this time, he has offered his help to students who are set to appear for JEE and NEET exams. The 47-year-old star recently took to social media to offer his assistance to those students who might face difficulty in reaching their exam centers. Here's more.
"No one should miss their exam because of resources"
Sood made it clear that "in case JEE and NEET doesn't get postponed," he will help students reach their exam centers. In his tweet, he attached a photo that read, "I am standing with you. If you are stuck anywhere, let me know your areas of travel. I will help you reach your examination centers. No one should miss their exam because of resources."

Previously as well, Sood has been vocal about supporting those who have to appear for NEET and JEE.

It’s an examination for the Government too.
Govt. has an opportunity to excel by postponing #JEE_NEET for 60 days.
Make it happen and bring those smiles back.
Students Govt. can prepare in this time window. #PostponeJEE_NEET
Demands for postponing the exams are coming from every direction
Apart from Sood, opposition leaders like Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, her Odisha counterpart Naveen Patnaik, DMK President MK Stalin, and Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia have also demanded the postponement. Even environmental activist Greta Thunberg tweeted her support for the students. Recently, 4,000 students went on a hunger strike to demand postponing of the JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 exam.
