Bhubaneswar: In a bid to raise issues of transgender in the Parliament, transgender woman Meghna Sahoo said she would contest in the forthcoming by-election of Rajya Sabha for Odisha.
Meghna on Thursday purchased the nomination form at Odisha Legislative Assembly office to file the nomination as a candidate.
She was accompanied by few transgender women in a procession.
It may however be noted here that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has already announced Pratap Deb as the party’s candidate in the by-poll.
The post in Rajya Sabha was lying vacant after MP Bishnu Das resigned from his post in March this year.
