Ganjam: Elderly woman candidate Pramila Bisoi, who has been fielded by Biju Janata Dal (BJD) for Aska Lok Sabha seat, today filed her nomination papers. She filed her nomination with Ganjam Collector-cum-District Election Officer in presence of local MLAs and her supporters.

After filing of the papers, she greeted everyone and said, "I thank the Chief Minister as I have reached this position because of him. I wish to serve 70 lakh women as Aska MLA."

Bisoi, who is the President Sata Sankha SHG, has had long years of experience in the SHG movement. Widely respected and called 'Pari Maa', she is a grassroot leader in her own right.

She has mobilized women in her village, the district and around the State to form self-help groups. She played the lead role in making her village truly Open-Defecation Free in 2002, stated sources.
