A record of sorts was created in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday with first time Member Kahkashan Perween presiding over the Question Hour, for the first time.
After the Zero hour ended, Rajya Sabha Chairman M.Venkaiah Naidu announced that she would preside over the proceedings of the House during the Question Hour.
Perween is the only woman Member currently on the Panel of Vice-Chairpersons of Rajya Sabha.
Naidu later complimented her for doing her job with confidence.
Naidu appointed Perween as Vice-Chairperson following the demand made by some women Members on March 8, 2018, on the occasion of International Women's Day. (UNI)
