Actor Sonu Sood's sister joins Congress in Punjab
Actor-philanthropist Sonu Sood's sister Malvika Sood on Monday joined the Congress, with the party's Punjab chief Navjot Singh Sidhu describing the development as a ''game-changer'' ahead of the February 14 assembly polls.
''It is very rare that a party chief and the chief minister both have gone to someone's home to grant the honour, and she deserves it,'' Sidhu said.
''It is a matter of great happiness for us that a young woman who has earned a name for herself by running an NGO and dedicated herself to the people's service is joining our party,'' Sidhu said while welcoming her into the Congress.
Referring to Malvika Sood's joining the Congress, Sidhu said, ''In the cricketing world, it is called a game-changer.'' ''She is an young and educated woman, and her education as software engineer will help her in her life ahead,'' Sidhu said.
Speaking on the occasion, Malvika Sood said she has taken the political plunge to dedicate herself to serve the people.
