priyanka: Pregnant Woman In Nuapada Campaigns For Sarpanch Post | Bhubaneswar News

Bhubaneswar: For 22-year-old Priyanka Sahu, pregnancy is not a hindrance while campaigning for the panchyat elections.
Brimming with energy and confidence, Priyanka, who is nine months pregnant, has hit the campaign trail on foot with some women supporters in Sahipala panchayat of Nuapada district.
Married in 2020, she is expecting her first child. She is also pursuing her post graduation in political science (distance education) and aspires to become a sarpanch and serve the poor and needy of the area.
She said her pregnancy has not been an impediment during campaigning while doctors have given her a February end date for the delivery.
“It was my conscious decision to contest the election. I didn’t draw inspiration from anybody. The circumstances were in my favour only in the sense that the seat was reserved for women. My husband is a contractor and he is busy with his work. Rarely does he get time to help me during the campaigning,” Priyanka told TOI.
On her decision to contest, she claimed that despite being educated one cannot directly solve the peoples’ problems without being a public representative. “I couldn’t have aspired bigger than sarpanch as far as foraying into politics was concerned. I will serve people with whatever human and leadership qualities I have and my education will help understand the system better,” she said.
In her paternal home, there is nobody connected to politics. “My father-in-law Hansram Sahu was sarpanch twice in the 90s. After I got married, I just heard some stories about his leadership. But politics now has become too much competitive,” she added.
Priyanka is pitted against two more candidates, one of whom Dharani Majhi, is unmarried and has done her masters in science. The third nominee is Roshan Bano.
Priyanka said she will continue her higher studies even after she wins the election. Priyanka hopes she would get two good news together since the counting for the rural polls is in the fourth week of February and so is her delivery.
