The RJD had won only 22 seats in the last assembly polls in Bihar. The BJP and the JD (U) had claimed 91 and 115 seats respectively.
Kapil Deb Kamat had emerged victorious from the seat in October assembly elections in 2005 by defeating Uma Kant Yadav who had won the seat by defeating him in the previous assembly in February in that year. It has to be noted that Bihar went to the assembly polls twice in 2005 because the earlier one held in February threw hung assembly necessitating the holding of the second assembly polls in the month of October of the same year.
Uma Kant Yadav had also won the Babubarhi assembly seat in a byepoll to the seat in 2003 which was necessitated due to the death of the sitting RJD MLA Dev Narayan Yadav who had been elected from the seat in 1977, 1990, 1995 and 2000. Dev Narayan Yadav, a former speaker of the Bihar legislative assembly, served as a minister in the cabinet of Bihar's first Chief minister Shri Krishna Singh.

Mangani Lal Mandal had won the seat in the previous Lok Sabha election on the ticket of the Janata Dal (United).
Sitting RJD MLA Umakant Yadav quit the party and is now contesting the election in Babubarhi on a Samajwadi Party ticket. He will be finding it a tough battle as his main opponent is Kapildev Kamath of JD(U) who was the runner-up in the last assembly election. Both the main contestants are rivals in the last election too. Caste matrix and the last-minute sentiment of the voters will be the clinching factors in this constituency.
CPI too is contesting in Babubarhi. The sitting MLA Uma Kant Yadav of RJD defeated Kapildev Kamat of JD(U) by a margin of 4,913 votes in the 2010 assembly election. Yadav got 51,772 votes, while Kamat managed 46,859 votes. The Babubarhi segment lies in Jhanjharpur Lok Sabha constituency and is part of Madhubani district.
