BJP planning to send veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty to Rajya Sabha

Kolkata: BJP is planning to send veteran actor and party star campaigner Mithun Chakraborty (72) to the Rajya Sabha. It is reported that it has almost been decided to send Mithun in the place of Rupa Ganguly to the House of Elders.

Actor and former Rajya Sabha member Mithun Chakraborty worked as a star campaigner on behalf of the BJP in the last Assembly elections. But since then he has been staying away from Bengal politics due to illness. In this process, the comments made by him, which came on the political screen recently, became a topic of discussion.

"Due to my health reasons, I could not come in front of people for a long time. Politics should be kept as politics. But, the news of unrest in Bengal after the election is very hurtful,” he said, giving an indication of political re-entry.

The tenure of Rupa Ganguly and Swapan Dasgupta in the Rajya Sabha will come to an end. The presidential and vice-presidential elections are coming soon. At this juncture, the BJP is firm on filling the vacant Rajya Sabha seats. BJP has already made a key announcement that these two vacancies from Bengal should be filled with people from Bengal.
