Sinking political differences, Trinamool Congress candidate and maverick politician Madan Mitra on Sunday celebrated Holi with three actors-turned-BJP nominees on board a vessel on river Hooghly. Mitra, the TMC candidate, celebrated holi with Payel Sarkar, Srabonti Chatterjee and Tanushree Chakraborty, who are contesting the assembly elections on BJP tickets. Singing popular Holi-special Bengali song, 'Khelbo Holi rong debona', Mitra said, "They are my friends. We have known each other for many years. There shouldn't be any politics on Holi. I invited them and they are here. Political differences should not overshadow our personal relations. We can have different political ideologies but we are all together on Holi, which speaks of amity and harmony. This is the culture of West Bengal," he added.
