Actors Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan, who have been elected as Trinamool Congress MPs from Bengal, posed for pictures in front of the Parliament on Monday. Twitter is shaming them saying Parliament is no place to do photoshoots.
Bengali actors Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan who were elected as Trinamool Congress MPs from West Bengal posted pictures of their first day at the Parliament. However, Twitter didn’t take too kindly to their posing in front of the Parliament.
The actors were shamed for how they dressed up on their first day as Members of Parliament. Earlier, after their names were announced as Trinamool candidates, the two were faced with bitter trolling over their credentials to contest elections.
On Monday, as Mimi, the Jadavpur Trinamool Congress MP, posted a photo of hers wearing a white shirt, jeans and a pair of sneakers, many commented to say that “this is not film shooting”.
One of the users wrote, “Did you go there to do this drama? Please do not do this drama at the Parliament and shame Bengal.”
Nusrat Jahan, the Trinamool MP from Basirhat, too shared a similar photo on her Instagram account and had to face a similar rebuke.
One such user wrote in Bengali, “This is not a place for a photoshoot. This is a place where you should fight for the people’s rights and legislate for the country. You don’t belong here.”
Meanwhile, another user took on Nusrat’s knowledge of grammar over her caption.
While Mimi Chakraborty defeated veteran CPIM leader and former Kolkata mayor Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya with a huge margin, Nusrat too won with a massive mandate.
