Kolkata: Actor and BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty faced protests by Trinamool Congress cadres on Saturday soon after he came out of a polling station at Belgachia in North Kolkata after casting his vote.

Before he went in to cast his vote he stood in the queue with the people and waited for his turn patiently. All was well till that time. Trouble began after the actor came out of the poll booth and was requested by some voters to click selfies with them.

The actor obliged and some people took selfies with him. Local Trinamool Congress councilor Debika Chakraborty who had also arrived at the scene by then began complaining that Mithun Chakraborty was trying to influence the voters standing in the queue.

The agitated Trinamool Congress activists assembled outside the polling station and began protesting against him. They began shouting slogans of “Thief, Thief.” Chakraborty did not lose calm and left the place with a smiling face. However, he denied the allegation raised by the Trinamool Congress councilor that he was trying to influence the voters standing in the queue.

“I have diligently performed my campaigning duty till May 30. Now, it is time again to concentrate on cinema and acting,” he said.
