Actor Rekha today took oath as Rajya Sabha MP and her oath taking ceremony became a point of attraction among the other members. Most of the MPs were quite happy to see Rekha joining the ranks. She was welcomed by many senior members when she entered the House.
After taking the oath in English Rekha went to sign the member register and proceeded to greet the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Leader of Opposition Mr Arun Jaitely. Both the leaders welcomed her to the House.
The only person who did not show any warmth towards Rekha was Jaya Bachchan (SP) who did not even bother to greet her. Lyricist Javed Akhtar helped her in understanding the proceedings of the House. She was in the House for nearly an hour before she made a quiet exit.
