Popular Malayalam filmstar Suresh Gopi today briefly hogged limelight in the Rajya Sabha as he presented his maiden parliamentary report and Deputy Chairman P J Kurien complimented him.
When Kurien called Meghraj Jain (BJP) to present the reports of the department-related standing committee on information technology, the BJP leader said his co-member on the panel, Suresh Gopi, will present it.
As Gopi, who was BJP’s star campaigner and nominated to the Upper House in April, rose to lay the report on the table of the House, Kurien said it was Malayalam actor’s maiden report presentation.
“I have seen you acting in films. This is first time I am seeing you present a report in the House,” he remarked. “Wish you best of luck,” he said, as members thumped desks to welcome him.
