First-time TMC MPs Nusrat Jahan, Mimi Chakraborty take oath as Lok Sabha members
The first-time parliamentarians, TMC MPs Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain and Mimi Chakraborty took oath as members of the 17th Lok Sabha on June 25, 2019. Both the actresses were not present on the day that the oath of the office was administered to all the Lok Sabha MPs, due to Nusrat Jahan’ s wedding.
Nusrat Jahan recently got married to a Hindu businessman Nikhil Jain in Turkey and Mimi Chakraborty was a guest in the ceremony, due to which both the actresses missed taking oath along with the other MPs during the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha.
So, as soon as the Lok Sabha convened for the day, the two actresses took oath as first-time MPs in Bangla. Both of them ended their oath by saying “Jai Hind, Vande Mataram and Jai Bangla”. The two later touched Lok Speaker Om Birla’s feet before taking their seat.
