“My hands were sore because I had scratches over my hands” : Mimi Chakraborty on shaking hands with gloves on

When we first come to limelight, the first thing we do is like we shake hands, we give autographs. Elections and being artists or celebrities is always the same because you work for the people, Chakraborty said.

Actor-turned-politician and the Lok Sabha candidate for the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, Mimi Chakraborty has spoken up in defence of her much-criticised act of shaking hands with people in her constituency with gloves on. Speaking to India Today, Chakraborty explained why she was wearing gloves while campaigning in her constituency in Jadavpur. She said that she had been campaigning for 20-21 days and her hands were sore because of shaking hands with people.

“Because I was already campaigning for around 20-21 days and my hands were sore because I had all these scratches over my hands”, she justified.

“When we first come to limelight, the first thing we do is like we shake hands, we give autographs. Elections and being artists or celebrities is always the same because you work for the people. So people cannot ever be a barrier”, Chakraborty added.

Earlier also she had said that she had applied ointment on her hands to treat some nail scratches, bruises and burns that she had sustained, and she had covered the hands with gloves so that the medication does not smudge.

Mimi Chakraborty had made headlines after a video had gone viral in which she was seen sitting in her car and shaking hands with people with gloves on. She had drawn a lot of flak after another video of hers went viral in which she was seen yelling at the voters during an election campaign telling them that everyone should get this in their heads that she had gone their leaving everything because of them.
