New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee’s son Abhijit Mukherjee took oath as a first time member of the Lok Sabha Thursday. Abhijit, who won the by-election to the Jangipur Parliamentary constituency, took oath in English and in the name of god.
The bypoll was necessitated as the seat fell vacant following the election of Pranab Mukherjee as the President of India. Abhijit won the bypoll as a Congress candidate. Earlier, he was a first-term member of the West Bengal Assembly.
BJP leader Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah, who was elected to the Lok Sabha from Tehri Garhwal in Uttarakhand, also took oath as member of the Lower House.
