Actor Mithun Chakraborty to share stage with PM Modi tomorrow



The RSS chief had met Mithun Chakraborty in Mumbai on 16 February.


Actor Mithun Chakraborty, a former Rajya Sabha member of Trinamool Congress, is likely to share the stage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Brigade Parade Ground in Kolkata tomorrow. Whether the film star will campaign for the BJP in the upcoming West Bengal Assembly elections is not yet clear as he is likely to contest. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat met him at his Mumbai bungalow on February 16, days after Sunday’s incident, prompting speculation that he would switch loyalties.

However, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya did not say anything about it. He said, “Only the public and the Prime Minister will be Narendra Modi, who is the biggest figure. We will welcome those who come. If Mithun Chakraborty comes, we will welcome him.”

However, BJP sources say Mr Chakraborty is one of the many important faces the party will deploy against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s rule.

State BJP vice-president Jai Prakash Majumdar said, “There are many Bengalis in and outside the state who are important people, who are concerned about the decline of Bengal under Mamata Banerjee’s leadership.” “Mithun Chakraborty is one of them.”

The 70-year-old enjoys a huge fan following in the state, especially after his 2006 film, MLA Fatkeshto, with his legendary line, “Marbo Ikhane, Lash Porbe Shoshanne“(“I will beat you here, your body will be found in the crematorium”).

He left the Rajya Sabha after two years in office after being embroiled in the Saradha chit fund case. The Enforcement Directorate had questioned the actor about the Rs 1.2 crore he received for being the brand ambassador of a TV news channel funded by the group. He returned the amount to the investigating agency and resigned from the Upper House citing ill health.

What he says about the Trinamool and Ms. Banerjee tomorrow from Mr. Modi’s platform will be important.

Besides this, some more important Bengali faces are set to join the BJP in the coming weeks, according to sources. Elections will be held in the state in eight phases from March 27 to April 29, the results of which will be declared on May 2.
