A bastion of the Communist Party of India (CPI) during the earlier period of electoral politics of Bihar, Benipatti assembly constituency is currently represented by Vinod Narain Jha of the BJP who had emerged victorious in the last assembly elections to the state by defeating Mahesh Chandra Singh of the Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) by a good margin of 12642 votes. In that election, whereas Vinod Narain Jha polled 31198 votes, the LJP candidate received 18556 votes and was followed by Bhawana Jha of the Congress with 13334 votes.
In 2010, the JD (U) did not field its candidiate because under the terms of its alliance with the BJP the seat was allotted to the BJP. Equations have now changed. The Ramvilas Paswan headed LJP, which had contested the last assembly polls in Bihar in alliance with the Lalu led Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), is now a part of the BJP led NDA, the ruling dispensation at the Centre. On the other hand, the BJP and the JD (U) have parted ways. The RJD, the JD (U) and the Congress have come together to stop the BJP from coming to power in Bihar which will go to the polls this year.
In the October assembly election in 2005, Benipatti was won by Shaligram Yadav of the Janata Dal (United) who had defeated the sitting Congress MLA Yugeshwar Jha by a margin of 7378 votes. Yugeshwar Jha had won the seat in the previous assembly election held in February that year. In 2005 Bihar went to the assembly polls twice 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. Shaligram Yadav, who is the sitting JD (U) MLA from Harlakhi assembly seat which he won in 2010, had also claimed the Benipatti seat in 1995 as an Independent candidate.
Earlier Yugeshwar Jha had won the Benipatti seat three times in a row (1980, 1985 and 1990) on the ticket of the Congress. Tej Narayan Jha of the CPI was elected in 1967, 1969 and 1977.
Bhawana Jha, who had lost the last election from Benipatti has again been fielded by Congress even as some senior leaders were eyeing the seat. Sitting MLA Vinod Narayan Jha from BJP is more than ready to take the Congress challenge as the caste factor favour the NDA candidate. Benipatti segment is represented in the assembly by Vinod Narain Jha of BJP. In the November 2010 assembly elections, Jha defeated LJP's Mahesh Chandra Singh by a margin of 12,642 votes.
Jha won 31,198 votes against Mahesh Chandra Singh's 18,556. Benipatti assembly segment is a part of the Madhubani Lok Sabha constituency.
