Bollywood actor Sonu Sood's sister Malvika Sood on Monday(Jan 10) joined the Congress, with the party's Punjab chief Navjot Singh Sidhu claiming the development as a ''game-changer'' ahead of the February 14 assembly polls.

She joined the party in the presence of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Sidhu.

''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.

The joining in was held at the Sood residence in Punjab's Moga district and the actor had last year in November said that his sister would join politics.

Asked if Malvika Sood will fight the election from the Moga assembly constituency, Channi indicated that she would be the party's choice.

''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.

Sonu Sood, who hails from Moga, had earlier also said that his sister has done a lot of ''amazing'' work in the past.

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.

In November last year, Sonu Sood first announced his younger sister, Malvika Sood’s entry into politics. He said that she was ready to serve the people of Punjab and will contest the state Assembly polls scheduled for next year.
