Seven of total 21 MPs from Odisha are women. While five women have won the elections on Biju Janata Dal tickets, two belong to the BJP. They include a former IAS officer, a doctor, an engineer, a grassroots-level leader, a member of erstwhile royal family, and a homemaker.
Ever since Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced that his party, the BJD, would field 33% women candidates, it was expected that the representation of women would go up.
Of the seven women candidates fielded by Mr. Patnaik, five emerged victorious while of two of the three BJP women candidates won.
Aparajita Sarangi, a former IAS officer who had a reputation of an able administrator, tasted success in her electoral debut. In November 2018, Ms Sarangi, the ex-Odisha cadre officer who last served as a Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Rural Development, had joined the BJP. She won the Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha seat, a bastion of ruling BJD.
