Well known actor, Mithun Chakraborty on Sunday joined BJP at a rally in Kolkata, moments before PM Modi's arrival at the party rally for the upcoming Bengal elections.
The actor, who is specially well-known in Bengal, stated that it is a dream come true to be sharing the stage with the Prime Minister of the World's largest Democracy. He added that he wished to work for the poorer sections of the society and now this wish of his will be fulfilled.
Widely known as 'Mithun Da', the actor formerly was associated with the Trinamool Party in the state and even got a Rajya Sabha seat on the party's ticket, which he later quit within two years of the tenure when he was named under the Saradha Chit Fund scam. Following the return of money, he quit the party as well citing poor health.
