Transgender Meghna filed nomination for Rajya Sabha by-election


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.
