Langar, medical camps…: ‘Mogey di dhee’ Malvika Sood hits the road before the Punjab elections


A month after actor Sonu Sood announced that his sister Malvika Sood Sachar (38) was “ready to serve the people of the Punjab” and that she would challenge the upcoming assembly polls in their hometown of Moga, she started the election campaign with a range of social works.

Whether it is making chapatis for Langar Sewa, organizing free medical camps or organizing interactions with young and old people, Malvika is doing everything for her campaign in Moga. On some country roads, she is also accompanied by her brother Sonu Sood.

The posters of the free medical camps that she organizes in the villages present her as ‘Mogey di dhee’ with a picture of her and that of Sonu Sood. Recently, she has also distributed cell phone stickers, vehicle stickers, grocery bags and shawls with the same punchline.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Malvika, who along with her brother runs the Sood Charity Foundation in memory of their late parents Shakti Sagar Sood and Saroj Sood, said that an identity that will stay with her forever and that she tried to engrave in the minds and hearts of the people of Moga was that she was their daughter.

“I was born in Moga, I am married here and it is the people of Moga that I want to serve in any way I can. So regardless of the political party, one thing that will never change is that I will always remain ‘Mogey di dhee’ (daughter of Moga), ”she said.

“This campaign is going to last the whole time whether I win or lose the polls. We will continue to serve people as we have done for years through our trust in the memory of our parents, ”added Malvika.

Malvika said that although people used to know her as “Sonu Sood’s sister”, that was changing. “Now people know me through my work. When I go to the villages, they recognize me and say that I am their daughter. So we couldn’t think of a better phrase than ‘Mogey di dhee’ for our campaign, ”she said.
She said that although Sonu Sood would always remain her “biggest supporter”, but since she contested the polls, she would be the face of the campaign. “On the ground, it is I who must take charge of the responsibility that I have taken on for the inhabitants of Moga”, she added.

The youngest of three siblings, Malvika graduated in engineering and also runs an IELTS coaching center in Moga with her husband Gautam Sachar. Her older sister Monika is based in the United States.
Her father, the late Shakti Sagar Sood, ran a fabric store in Moga’s Main Bazaar and her mother, the late Saroj Bala Sood, was an English teacher at DM College in the district.

Malvika has said she will join a party that supports her ongoing charity projects. “All the major parties are approaching us, but I would only join that party that would help us serve the people of Moga,” she said.

Moga is currently represented by Dr Harkot Kamal of Congress. Shiromani Akali Dal appointed Barjinder Singh Makhan Brar, son of veteran leader Tota Singh, as Moga’s candidate. The Aam Aadmi party has yet to announce its nominee. Rahul Gandhi is expected to kick off the congressional campaign with a rally in Moga on January 3.
