Punjab Congress MLA removed because of Sonu Sood’s sister Malvika

Harjot Kamal reached the BJP office in Chandigarh and was seen greeting the leaders there.

Chandigarh: Congress MLA from Punjab’s Moga, Harjot Kamal, who was unhappy over his seat being given to actor Sonu Sood’s sister Malvika Sood, just weeks before the state elections, joined the BJP on Saturday.

Shri Kamal reached the BJP office in Chandigarh and was seen greeting the leaders there.

Actor-philanthropist Sonu Sood’s sister Malvika Sood had joined the Congress in Moga on Monday.

When asked whether Malvika Sood would contest from the constituency, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi replied, “Is there anything to say now”, indicating that she is the party’s choice.

Responding to a question about Kamal, who was absent from the announcement to join, Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu said the MLAs are his “personal friends”.

Punjab assembly elections are to be held in a single phase on February 14 and the results will be out on March 10.

The ruling Congress is fighting to retain power in one of the very few states, which is expected to face strong challenges from the BJP and the AAP, which has already released nine lists of candidates.
