TMC MP Sauagata ROY said, BJP threatened actor Mithun Chakraborty with cases by ED and he left Rajyasabha and now he has joined BJP. He has no credibality, no respect, and no influence among the people. He is not star of today. He is a star of yesteryears. He has changed parties four times. He was originally a Naxalite, then went to CPM, then joined TMC and was made a Rajya Sabha MP.
His comments came under the backdrop of Mithun Chakraborty joining BJP on Sunday at a rally at Kolkata.
