Bollywood actor Sonu Sood's sister Malvika Sood on Monday joined the Punjab Congress ahead of assembly elections in the state slated for 2022. She joined the Punjab Congress in presence of the Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi and PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Earlier today, Sidhu met with Malvika Sood, and brother Sonu at his Moga residence. Upon inducting Malvika to the party, Sidhu tweeted, "There is no permanent name and fame than the endeavour to give happiness to mankind !! Chairs don’t grace people but people grace those chairs … Proud to be associated with one of the greatest Philanthropists of our times, The Party feels proud to have them onboard".

Sonu Sood had said in November that his sister, Malvika Sood, will contest the upcoming Punjab polls. Meanwhile, on Friday he "voluntarily" stepped down as the "State Icon" of Punjab.  This move comes ahead of the state elections.

He took to his Twitter handle and wrote, "Like all good things, this journey has come to an end too. I've voluntarily stepped down as the State Icon of Punjab. This decision was mutually taken by me and EC in light of my family member contesting in Punjab Assembly Elections. I wish them luck for future endeavours."

Assembly elections in Punjab will take place in a single phase and polling will be held on February 14. Election results for all 5 poll-bound states will be announced on March 10.
