Bhagwat-Mithun meet: Actor laughs off Bengal CM face speculation

Bhagwat meeting with Chakraborty went on for more than an hour. Another meeting between the two is likely in near future


Rashtriya Swamamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat visited actor Mithun Chakraborty at his house at Madh Island in Mumbai on 16 February. Bhagwat’s visit comes ahead of the upcoming Assembly elections in West Bengal, scheduled for April-May this year.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), an RSS affiliate, has been campaigning aggressively in the eastern state and key leaders including Home Minister Amit Shah and party president have launched five ‘Parivartan Yatras’ on rath across the state

Bhagwat’s meeting with Chakraborty went on for more than an hour. Another meeting between the two is likely in near future.

Our relationship is spiritual and deep: Chakraborty on visit by Mohan Bhagwat

Asked whether the meeting between them was of a political nature, Chakraborty said that the relationship between them is ‘spiritual and deep’. He had earlier promised to visit me in Mumbai. As I finished my shooting in Lucknow and arrived here, he came to meet, he said, adding, Since he had come home, definitely we share a good camaraderie. We had breakfast and he invited me to visit him in Nagpur.

The actor clarified there is no political aspect to the meeting. Asked to comment on his political prospects, Chakraborty joked off speculations that he could be the chief ministerial face for the BJP in poll-bound West Bengal.

The main contest will be between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress and the resurgent BJP, which made deep inroads in the politically charged state. Notably, in 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the saffron party had won 18 of the 42 seats. The Left and the Indian National Congress (INC) have announced to contest the West Bengal polls together. 

Many TMC leaders, including TMC heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari, former Bengal minister Rajib Banerjee, MLAs Prabir Ghosal and Baishali Dalmiya, Howrah Rathin Chakraborty and actor Rudranil Ghosh deserted the ruling party and joined the BJP ahead of the West Bengal election.
