About an hour before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mega rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Ground, actor Mithun Chakraborty joined the BJP. During this time he said that from the age of 18 he used to dream of doing something for the poor. I will fulfill this dream
Mithun said- I speak to all Bengalis living in Bengal that you have the right in everything. Some people like us will stand there who will try to take away your rights. Have heard everyone’s speeches. Everyone living in Bengal is Bengali. I am a Bengali by heart. We want to do something for the poor.
Speculation about Mithun joining BJP started only when Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat visited his Mumbai home last month. According to reports, Mithun Chakraborty visited Nagpur in October 2019. During this time he had met Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat and invited him to come home.
