Report;Bureau,Odishabarta

 

Bhubaneswar,05/02/18:BJD contestant Rita Sahu filed his nomination papers today for the Bijepur by-poll scheduled on February 24.


Earlier on February 2, BJP candidate Ashok Panigrahi filed his nomination papers.


Rita filed her candidature in the presence of a host of senior leaders, including party vice-president Prasanna Acharya and AU Singhdeo, Debi Mishra, Sanhay Das Burma and Anubhav Patnaik at the Padampur Sub-Collector’s office.


Rita reached Padampur in a rally where she filed her nominations before the returning officer at the sub-collector office there.


Congress candidate Pranay Sahu will file his nomination on February 6, the last date to file nominations. Counting will be held on February 28.


After submitting the papers, Rita asserted that she would win the Bijepur assembly seat which was represented by his husband Subal Sahu whose death in August last year necessitated the by-poll.


Rita and her two sons had joined the BJD, along with their supporters in September last year.


The ensuing by-election assumed significance as its outcome could set the tone for the 2019 assembly and Lok Sabha elections.


A part of Bargarh district in western Odisha, Bijepur has been a stronghold of the Congress. Subal Sahu was thrice elected from the seat on a Congress ticket.
