KOLKATA: Bangladeshi actor Ferdous Ahmed was once forced to depart India on Tuesday after he was once order by way of the ministry of home affairs to go out the country for campaigning for the Trinamool on Sunday.

“Ferdous Ahmed left the country this (Tuesday) afternoon after MHA requested the actor to depart India,” an legitimate instructed TOI.

MHA has sought a report from the West Bengal government and the local Foreigner Regional Registration Office, prompting FRRO to probe whether the actor had violated work visa laws by way of campaigning for TMC’s Raiganj candidate Kanaia Lal Agarwal.

Bangladesh deputy high commission officials showed that Ahmed’s visa did not allow him to take part in political campaigns. The officials had referred to as the actor on Sunday itself to inquire about the problem after his campaigning sparked a political stir. Ahmed reportedly spoke back that he was once shooting near Raiganj on Sunday afternoon and “may no longer flip down TMC’s request for campaigning”.

TOI referred to as Ahmed on his India and Bangladesh mobile phone but there was once no response.

Ahmed’s colleague expressed surprise on the actor getting embroiled in this controversy. “He has been coming to Kolkata for over 20 years now and has seen many elections (in India). He has never been eager about the sort of controversy.”

The MHA motion came an afternoon after state BJP vice-president Jay Prakash Majumdar sent a WhatsApp criticism to state chief electoral officer Aariz Aftab in conjunction with a clip of Ahmed’s Sunday campaign.
