Actor Mithun Chakraborty joins BJP in Kolkata, will share stage with PM Modi

Mar 07, 2021 14:20 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Putting an end to all speculation, actor and former TMC MP Mithun Chakraborty has been formally inducted into the Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday.

Mithun was welcomed on stage by Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh at the iconic Brigade Ground in Kolkata, where PM Modi held his mega rally on Sunday. BJP's national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya was also present at the stage.

Earlier, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya shared photos of a meeting with the actor on Saturday, which triggered speculations of Mithun joining the party. 

Once considered close to the CPI(M), Mithun Chakraborty was Rajya Sabha MP for the TMC for few years, before resigning expressing a desire to quit politics.
