Mithun Chakraborty retreats and joins the actual saffron mat with a renewed sense of certainty. His key statement was that it was his grave mistake to hang around the TMC exhibits his opportunistic mood. From the year 2014 to 2016, he could not realise his fault. It came to his mind only in the year 2021.
Mithun was offered a seat to fight assembly election by Mamta Banerjee in Kolkata’s Kevratala Samshan Ghat, but he readies himself now to send TMC there. This is the irony of time. Does politics pull permanent pals?
(मिथुन के नाम पर माथापच्ची चल ही रही थी कि इसी दौरान अभिनेत्री सुचित्रा सेन का निधन हो गया। मिथुन उनके अंतिम संस्कार में शामिल होने के लिए कोलकाता पहुंचे थे। कोलकाता केवड़ातला श्मशान घाट में सुचित्रा सेन का अंतिम संस्कार किया जा रहा था। इसी दौरान दीदी ने मिथुन से कहा कि वह अपना मन बना चुकी हैं और वही पार्टी की तरफ से उम्मीदवार होंगे।)
The actor, who influenced Bollywood with his acting calibre, will now be preparing himself to enjoy political stature. But his story will largely play out through image approval. It is not an embarrassment for the actor to come to the BJP fold. The ever-expanding party and its apostles are looking for more by renouncing the TMC.
The 70-year-old Bengal icon recognises himself as a harmful cobra than a water snake. He was tilted towards Communist views during his student days, later joined TMC and now bows to the saffron ideology. His political quest is unending. He appears to be following an opportunistic stance for serving the poor.
He foresees the party’s win in the state assembly elections. He stated that the BJP was the only party helping the poor and if he wanted to fulfil his unfulfilled dream, he must hold someone’s hand. “You can call me selfish or anything else. But the reason behind my selfishness is that I want to be with poor people, I want to fight for them,” he insisted.
