In that election, while Anil Kumar had polled 38965 votes, Siddharth received 36613 votes was followed by Ram Janam Sharma, a former BJP MLA, who got 11812 votes. Ram Janam Sharma entered the fray as an independent candidate after being denied ticket by the party.

Subhash Prasad Yadav who entered the contest as an Independent secured 9974 votes. The Congress candidate Sanjeev Singh was relegated to the seventh place.
Dominated by the Bhumiar community, Bikram had elected Anil Kumar in both the elections in 2005. While his win in February came as a candidate of the LJP, he won the October/November poll on the ticket of the BJP.
In 2000, Bikram went in favour of Ram Janam Sharma who contested on the ticket of the BJP and emerged winner by defeating Chadrama Singh Yadav. Before that seat was being represented by veteran Communist Party of India (CPI) leader Ram Nath Yadav who was first elected in 1980 after defeating the sitting Janata Party MLA Kailash Pati Mishra, who later joined the BJP. He went on to win the next three elections in 1985, 1990 and 1995. In 1995 he had trounced top Bihar BJP leader C.P. Thakur, then a Congress candidate.
Bikram is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to form the parliamentary constituency of Pataliputra which is currently held by Union minister Ram Kripal Yadav who had defeated Misa Bharti, daughter of Lalu Yadav, by 40,322 votes in the last general Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

Other five assembly segments that are part of Pataliputra parliamentary constituency are Danapur, Maner, Phulwari, Masaurhi and Paliganj.
Congress has fielded former LJP leader Siddharth Singh from Bikram. Anil Kumar from BJP is ready to fight it out with Siddharth in Bikram. The Congress candidate is the son of Patna physician Utpal Kant. Vinod Sharma had quit as Pradesh Congress general secretary. Sharma, sources said, wanted ticket from Bikram seat in Patna district. The party, however, allotted the symbol to Siddhartha, son of Patna's famous paediatrician Dr Utpal Kant. CPI too has jumped into the fray with Raj Kumar Yadav contesting in Bikram.
