Newly-elected Trinamool Congress parliamentarians Nusrat Jahan Ruhi and Mimi Chakraborty lost their patience outside the parliament today after media persons mobbed them asking for quotes and pictures.
While the actors-turned-politicians initially posed for the pictures, the two got uncomfortable and restless when they were unable to move past the media personnel.
At one point, Nusrat Jahan protectively put her arm around her friend Mimi Chakraborty and asked the media persons to back off. “Aap dhakka nahin maar sakte sir, samajhiye baat ko (You cannot push us sir, please try to understand),” Ms Jahan said.
The security persons had to intervene to help them move towards their vehicles. They later asked the media persons to stand in a line at a reasonable distance and click the pictures.
Ms Jahan and Ms Chakraborty, both first-time parliamentarians, took political plunge this year. While Ms Jahan is member from Basirhat, Ms Chakraborty represents Jadavpur in the lower house.
The two actors-turned-politicians missed the oath taking ceremony earlier this month as the they were away for Ms Jahan’s wedding ceremony in Turkey.
