Mumbai: The sanskari wardrobe police seemed to be on the prowl on social media on Monday. Actresses Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan, Trinamool Congress candidates who successfully contested the Lok Sabha elections from West Bengal, found themselves on the receiving end on social media for their outfits on their first visit to Parliament.
Mimi, who contested from Jadavpur, wore a white shirt, denims and sneakers, while Nusrat, who was elected from Basirhat, wore a plum-coloured ensemble. “Seriously? This is how you pose in front of Parliament? This is not some film shooting. Get real, girl,” admonished one. “Parliament is not a photo studio,” said another, while one user simply slammed her saying, “she is not suitable for the position”.
Another comment read: “You should wear some Indian attire in Parliament. You are going for people not for movie promotions. And keep some respect towards your Bengali society.”
