Amnour is one of the ten assembly constituencies located in the Saran district of Bihar. It comprises of Saguni, Sobhepur, Chandpura, Pachrukhi, Pachalakh and Bheldi gram panachayats of Parsa community development block and Maker and Amnour community development block. A total of 2, 63,619 people are eligible voters of whom there are 1, 40,462 male and 1,23,153 female voters in this constituency.
One of the ten assembly constituencies located in the Saran district of Bihar, Amnour, which came into being before the last general assembly elections to the state in 2010, is currently held by the Janata Dal (United) whose candidate Krishana Kumar won the seat by defeating his nearest independent rival Sunil Kumar by a margin of 10517 votes in a quadrangular contest in 2010.
In that election, while Krishana Kumar had obtained 29508 votes, Sunil Kumar had polled 18991 votes and was followed by independent candidate Shatrudhan Tiwari who received 15547 votes. The Ramvilas Paswan led Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) nominee Shailendra Pratap, backed by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) of Lalu Prasad, was relegated to the fourth place with 11000 votes.
In the only election to the Amnour assembly constituency held in 2010, the BJP did not field its candidate as it was contesting the assembly elections in alliance with the JD (U). However, political equations have undergone a sea change. The BJP and the JD (U) have parted ways and the LJP, the ally of the RJD in the last assembly elections, is now a part of the BJP led National Democratic Alliance which is currently ruling the Centre. In a bid to survive, the RJD, the JD (U) and the Congress have joined forces to check the BJP which is looking forward to claim Bihar which will go to the polls later this year.
Amnour is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to form the parliamentary constituency of Saran which is currently represented by BJP Union minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy who won the seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by trouncing former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi by a margin of 40,948 votes.
Other five assembly constituencies that are parts of the Saran parliamentary seat are Chapra, Marhaura, Garkha, Parsa and Sonepur.
Krishna Kumar alias Manto Singh from JD(U) is on a strong wicket here as he faces a lightweight Satrughan Tiwari from BJP.
However, JD(U) candidate can ill-afford to take the fight lightly for the BJP has made considerable impact among young voters in Amnour which comes under Saran district.
