On examining the above claim, our team received a tweet from Sonu Sood. In which he congratulated his sister Malvika on joining the Congress.
As my sister Malvika Sood embarks on her political journey, I wish her the best and can’t wait to see her flourish in this new chapter of her life. Good luck Malvika!
My own work as an actor & humanitarian continues, without any political affiliations or distractions. pic.twitter.com/NCI0d4nUgC

Sonu tweets, “As my sister Malvika Sood embarks on her political journey, I wish her the best and can’t wait to see her flourish in this new chapter of her life. Good luck Malvika! My work as an actor & humanitarian continues, without any political affiliations or distractions.”
Another Tweet of Punjab Congress was also received. In which the Punjab Congress wrote, “We welcome Ms Malvika Sood Sachar to Congress family who joined the party today, supported by her brother, actor & social worker @SonuSood, in the presence of CM @CHARANJITCHANNI & PPCC President S. Navjot Singh Sidhu.
We wish her all the best in her journey in the service of people.
Conclusion: Hence the news of Sonu Sood joining BJP is fake.
