BJP’s newest member in West Bengal, actor turned politician Mithun Chakraborty on Sunday compared himself to the dangerous ‘Cobra’ snake and said he will finish the opposition in one bite.
While sharing the dais with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Kolkata today, Chakraborty took a dig at Trinamool Congress (TMC) and said, ‘Ami ekta cobra, ek chobol-ei chobi” (I am a pure cobra, My one bite is enough to kill people).
He also recited a famous dialogue from his 2006 hit film, MLA Fatakeshto, “Maarbo ekhane, lash podbe shoshaney’ (I will thrash you here, your body will fall into the crematorium)
While joining BJP, Chakraborty said his dream came true by sharing a stage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “I had never imagined that I will be sharing the dais where the biggest leader of the biggest democracy our beloved PM Narendra Modi is about to speak. I always had a dream to work for the poor, downtrodden. Now, it is seen as being fulfilled,” he said at the Brigade Parade Ground here.
Chakraborty joined the BJP at the Brigade Parage Ground in the presence of state party chief Dilip Ghosh today. BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, party vice president Mukul Roy and Suvendu Adhikari were also present at the ground where Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally.
Chakraborty, 70, was a Rajya Sabha MP for the Trinamool Congress (TMC) for two years. He resigned from the position in 2016 citing health reasons after his name surfaced in the Saradha ponzi scam.
