In the Bharatiya Janata Party, actor Mithun Chakraborty joined PM Modi’s presence today.
Actor Mithun Chakraborty joined PM Modi’s presence in the Bharatiya Janata Party ahead of the Bengal Assembly elections today. During this time, leaders like Kailash Vijayvargiya, including PM Modi and Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh were present on one platform. This time it is being fought between BJP and TMC.
Actor Mithun Chakraborty joined the Bharatiya Janata Party at the Brigade Ground in Kolkata. Mithun Chakraborty was welcomed by various party leaders before coming on stage. BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya had earlier met Chakraborty at his home in Belachachia. Vijayvargiya had said that I had spoken with him over the telephone. He is going to come today. I will be able to make a comment only after detailed discussion with them.
State BJP vice-president Arjun Singh had said that the people of the state would be happy if the actor shared the stage with the Prime Minister. If he joins it, it will be good for both the party and the state. If he shares the stage with PM Modi, the people of Bengal will be happy. Discussions started recently after rumors of Chakraborty joining the BJP hosted RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at his Mumbai home.
But on the other hand, one reason for joining BJP is the Saradha chit fund case. Actor Mithun Chakraborty was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate after he was named in the Saradha chit fund scam, according to a report. Mithun was accused of taking around Rs 2 crore from this group. Mithun has also been the brand ambassador of a media unit of the Sharda Group. Chakraborty was interrogated during the investigation of the scam. In 2016, Chakraborty resigned from the Rajya Sabha citing health reasons. At that time, he was a Rajya Sabha MP from TMC.
