Social activist Anna Hazare and film star Mithun Chakraborty may campaign for the Trinamool Congress in Jharkhand for the Lok Sabha polls.

The Trinamool had no standing in Jharkhand until recently. But it is now emerging as a key player.

"Anna Hazare, Mithun Chakraborty, (West Bengal Chief Minister) Mamata Banerjee and others will campaign in Jharkhand for the Trinamool Congress," said Bandhu Tirkey, who recently joined the party.

The two legislators supporting Hemant Soren's government in Jharkhand joined the Trinamool a few days back. They are Tirkey, from the Jharkhand Janadhikar Manch, and Chamra Linha from the Rastriya Kalyan Pakshya. 

The two parties merged with the Trinamool here Monday. Tirkey and Linha will contest from Ranchi and Lohardagga Lok Sabha seats respectively.
