Present Political Scenario:

Congress Presence
This is the rare eastern-UP seat that Congress had won in 2009.


X factor
BJP has nominated Pankaj Chaudhary once again – he is a 4 time MP from here. The sitting Congress MP has been a big under-performer.
Recent recruits R.K. Misra and Prem Sagar Patel (formerly BSP) who were expecting an MP ticket from here could create some problems for Pankaj Chaudhary, but it is still quite difficult to see BJP losing this seat.
