Actor Sonu Sood’s sister Malvika Sood on Monday joined the Congress in the presence of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Sidhu later met the siblings at their residence in Punjab’s Moga.
“Politics is about serving the people and Malvika Sood has joined the party solely with this intention”, Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi said on Monday. “Now there should be no doubt about who will be the Congress candidate from Moga,” he added.
The Election Commission had last week annulled the appointment of actor Sonu Sood as Punjab’s “state icon”. The Bollywood actor had, however, said that he voluntarily stepped down as a family member was contesting the upcoming assembly polls. He was made the state’s “icon” over a year ago by the EC.
