TMC first-time MP Nusrat Jahan gets married in Turkey; skips Parliament oath-taking ceremony

Jahan, along with fellow TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty, earlier received backlash for a selfie outside Parliament.

Agencies
The TMC MP tied the knot with Kolkata-based businessman Nikhil Jain.
Actress-turned-politician Nusrat Jahan got married to businessman Nikhil Jain in the picturesque Turkish town of Bodrum.The wedding took place on June 19 which was also the day of the oath-taking ceremony for newly-elected members of Parliament.

Jahan made her political debut after winning this year's Lok Sabha elections from the Basirhat constituency in West Bengal. But she had to skip the oath-taking ceremony in Parliament as it clashed with her nuptials.

Present at the wedding was also her friend and fellow first-time MP, Mimi Chakraborty who also skipped the oath-taking ceremony. The two had earlier received backlash for posting a selfie outside Parliament.


The first-time MP got married in an intimate ceremony held at the Six Senses Kaplankaya, an upscale resort set on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea. A reception is reportedly been planned in Kolkata next month.

Jahan posted a picture from the wedding, writing, "Towards a happily ever after with @nikhiljain09".
