So Mithun Chakraborty did finally join the BJP’s rally in West Bengal on Sunday, putting an end to all the will-he-won’t-he speculation about his future in politics.
A source from BJP and a virulent Mamta-baiter told me, “Mithunda was welcomed in the party folds, like all those known names from the entertainment business who show keenness to join Prime Minister Modi against Mamta Didi. But he’s already dreaming of becoming the chief minister of West Bengal, which is ridiculous , really. He neither has the following in Bengal nor does he have a deep understanding of the region’s politics.”
Apparently Mithunda has shared with the ruling government’s party members that becoming the CM of West Bengal is his only motive for the political jump .
“With his career in films being over, Mithunda only had one job, to serve as a host on dance reality shows. Now he has found something else to do. The dedication and commitment required to make a mark in West Bengal may not be his forte.Mithunda’s health doesn’t permit him to get that involved with his political career,” the source informs me.
