On SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, Sood said he would meet him too, adding that Badal has vast experience in politics.

About the ongoing farmers’ protest, the actor said it was necessary that the farmers get their rights, asserting that their issues should be resolved so that they can return to their fields.

Batting for the farmers, the actor said that Indians are eating because of them, so it is important that they should be happy.

He also called for improving the healthcare system in Punjab.

Speaking on this, he said, “There are several dispensaries in villages in Punjab where nobody is there (for patients). Sometimes in government hospitals, doctors and medicines were not available. These things should be set right.”

The actor was also asked about income tax raids on his premises in September, and he said that he has faced many difficulties in the past but he will always fight for the people.

‘Unemployment biggest problem of Punjab’

When asked about issues that are plaguing Punjab, Sood said that the biggest problem of the state is unemployment and linked it to drugs.

“When people do not get jobs, they take to drugs. We are already working on it,” he said.

He also stressed that the IT industry should be promoted in the state in a big way for generating employment opportunities.

His sister Malvika said she had been working towards addressing issues related to healthcare and education.

The Punjab assembly polls are due early next year.

Sood grabbed the entire nation’s eyeballs for helping migrants reach their home states during the nationwide lockdown announced last year in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
