Welcome To Parliament! Smriti Irani, Gambhir, Sunny & Others Who Took Oath As New MPs
All Hail The New MPs
Weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet took the oath of office at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, it was the turn of newly-elected members of Parliament to sign up. On Monday, the new MPs - some making their debuts while others doing an encore - were sworn-in as members of the 17th Lok Sabha.
From Gautam Gambhir to Sunny Deol and Babul Supriyo, here's a peek at all the celebrities who took the oath to the 17th Lok Sabha.
The actress-turned-politician, who rose to fame as Tulsi in popular daily soap 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi', took the lead in Amethi as the counting of votes began and defeated the Gandhi scion by 55,000+ votes. Her win in the constituency was a major setback for the Gandhi clan who have been ruling the constituency since 3-4 decades.
The former cricketer, who debuted in politics this year, contested elections from the East Delhi constituency. The BJP candidate, who was also this year's richest Lok Sabha candidate, made a mark in the constituency by winning the elections by a hefty margin of 3,17,000+ votes.
