Hooghly (West Bengal) [India], April 2 (ANI): Amid intense poll battle in West Bengal, actor and BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty hit out at the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) government over its 'poribortan' slogan, stating that there was "no change in the state and the slogan was just a lie".
He said it is BJP's motto that there will be a change in the state and no violence will take place.
While campaigning for BJP candidate Biman Ghosh in Pursurah here today, Chakraborty told ANI: "There was no 'poribortan' earlier, it was a lie. There will be a change now, there will be no riots or violence. This is BJP's motto."
