Will Mithun Chakraborty Formally Join BJP At March 7 Kolkata Rally?
New Delhi: Actor Mithun Chakraborty is set to share the stage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his rally on March 7 at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground. It is being seen as a confirmation of the speculation of his joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the Bengal Assembly elections scheduled to be held later this month.
Chakraborty recently made headlines for hosting Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat at his Mumbai bungalow, News18 reported.
The 70-year-old film star said he had a “spiritual relationship” with Mohan Bhagwat. “I have a spiritual relation with him. It is a very deep spiritual relation. There was a plan that he would come to my home when he visits Mumbai. It so happened that I returned to Mumbai from Lucknow after a shoot and he too is in Mumbai. So ‘jud gaye hum (we connected)’,” he told reporters.
Though Mithun Chakraborty denied any plans to join the BJP or politics, there are strong speculations that he may join the saffron brigade in presence of PM Modi in Kolkata.
West Bengal is all set to go to polls in eight phases from March 27 to April 29 and results to be announced on May 2.
