Newly elected Trinamool Congress MPs Nusrat Jahan Ruhi and Mimi Chakraborty, on Tuesday, took oath as members of Lok Sabha.
The two actor-turned-politicians could not take oath earlier along with other MPs as Nusrat Jahan recently married businessman Nikhil Jain and Mimi Chakraborty was in attendance at the ceremony in Turkey.
As soon as the House met for the day, the two took oath in Bangla, ending it with phrases such as Vande Mataram, Jai Hindi and Jai Bangla.
After taking the oath, the two went up to Speaker Om Birla to seek blessings by touching his feet.
While coming out of Parliament, Nusrat said, "There are several things on priority. We will raise the first concern of our constituencies before the House tomorrow. We will put across our views there."
"When I walked in, it felt like I was entering a temple — a temple of democracy. I realise how huge my responsibility is now,” Jahan added.

On the newlywed actress' first day in Parliament she also said, "Like any other woman who handles home and work, I will have to work for my people besides completing my film assignments. I may have a few sleepless nights, but I am not afraid to multi-task."
On the other hand, Mimi Chakraborty also spoke about her first day, saying, “There are many issues that bother me, three of which are on my priority list, but I will simply not talk about them now. When I raise it in Parliament, you will know, Mimi said”
