This is not the first incident of visitors from Bangladesh participating in political activities in Kolkata. Ahead of Lok Sabha elections last year, one Bangladeshi actor named Ferdous Ahmed was seen campaigning for a candidate of Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress. Subsequently, he was asked to leave India by the union home ministry and his visa was cancelled. He was also blacklisted by MHA for campaigning in an election in India.

After Ferdous, another Bangladeshi actor Gazi Abdun Noor was found participating in a roadshow of a TMC leader. He too was asked to leave India immediately, after it was found that his visa had already expired.
