BJP Workers Protest In Bengal After Mithun Chakraborty's Roadshow Cancelled

BJP workers stage a protest near Parnasree Police station in Kolkata.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was denied permission to hold a roadshow of Bollywood superstar Mithun Chakraborty, who had recently joined the party, in Behala area of Kolkata in West Bengal today, following which a group of party activists held a demonstration in front of a police station.

The agitation was led by actor-turned-politician Srabanti Chatterjee, who is contesting from the Behala Paschim assembly constituency on a BJP ticket, party sources said.

"The Kolkata Police did not allow our leader Mithun Chakraborty to campaign for me in the constituency without citing any reason. The Trinamool Congress cannot avert its imminent loss by such an undemocratic act of preventing us from campaigning. Is the state government scared of losing power?," Srabanti Chatterjee said.

The BJP party activists shouted slogans against the ruling TMC in front of the Parnasree Police Station.

BJP sources said the party sought permission to hold a door-to-door campaign by the Bollywood superstar in the Behala area after the city police had cancelled its roadshow plea on Wednesday night. "The door-to-door campaign by him was also not granted at the last minute," they claimed.
