TMC MPs Mimi, Nusrat raise first issue in Parliament
New Delhi: Cine stars-turned-Members of Parliament (MPs) of the Trinamool Congress, Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan Ruhi, raised their first issue in Parliament on Wednesday.
While Chakraborty sought construction of a flyover in her constituency Jadavpur to deal with traffic congestion, Nusrat sought a Kendriya Vidyalaya in her area Basirhat in West Bengal.
The two were sworn-in on Tuesday, more than a week after the other members took oath as Nusrat got married on June 15 in Turkey. The wedding also delayed the start of her friend Chakraborty's new innings in Parliament.
The two stars were seated together throughout the proceedings on Tuesday and were mobbed by the media as they walked out.
During Zero Hour on Wednesday, Chakraborty's spoke on the urgent need for construction of a flyover on a level crossing in Jadavpur. Nusrat read out her demand for a Kendriya Vidyalaya in her constituency.
