 About Arrah:

The Bhojpur district has a total population of 2,720,155 (2011 estimates). Though agriculture is the primary occupation of the people of the Bhojpur district, a number of medium- and small-scale industries, along with cottage industries, are present. Nonetheless, this district has been identified as one of the 250 backward districts in the state, receiving funds under the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme of the Indian Government.

Political Background:

 Bali Ram Bhagat of the Indian National Congress has remained the most popular leader in the Arrah constituency. He was elected to the Arrah seat as Member of Parliament for six Lok Sabha elections since 1952.

Present Political Scenario:

Where BJP may fancy its chances?

Here BJP has given ticket to one of its high profile new recruits, former home secretary, R.K. Singh. The party has considerable strength in Shahpur, Agiaon, Tarari and Sandesh assembly segments where it is expecting to take big leads.

Why it is a tough seat for BJP?

What has made this seat difficult for BJP is that slain Ranvir Sena chief Brahmeshwar Singh’s son, Indu Bhushan is also contesting from here as a nominee of Desi Kisan Party. In the 2004 polls, Brahmeshwar Singh had contested from here as an independent and had secured 1.5 Lakh votes which had helped RJD win this seat. If Indu Bhushan gets anywhere near as many votes as his father then R.K. Singh could be in trouble.
