Former CPIM MLA from Buxar Manju Prakash came fourth with 9317 votes. The sitting MLA and independent candidate Hridaya Narayan Singh Yadav, who had won the Buxar seat in the previous assembly elections held in 2005 October/November on the ticket of the BSP by defeating Sukhda Pandey by a small margin of 1027 votes, was relegated to the seventh position with just 4260 votes and was closely followed by the Congress nominee Anil Kumar Trivedi with 3783 votes.
Brahampur, Dumraon and Rajpur are the other three assembly constituencies located in Buxar district. Sukhda Pandey, a retired principal of Magadh Mahila College in Patna, had defeated Hridaya Narayan Singh Yadav in the February 2005 elections. She had emerged victorious in 2000 by defeating the sitting CPM MLA Manju Prakash who was elected in 1990 and 1995. In 1990 Manju Prakash had trounced veteran Congress leader Jag Narain Trivedi who was earlier elected from the Buxar assembly seat in 1962, 1969, 1972, 1977 and 1980 on the ticket of the Congress. Jag Narain Trivedi served as the Public Works Department (PWD) Minister in the Congress government led by Jagannath Mishra in Bihar.
Buxar is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to create the Buxar parliamentary constituency currently represented by Ashwani Kumar Choubey of the BJP who retained the seat for the BJP by defeating his nearest rival and sitting RJD MP Jagada Nand Singh by a margin of 1,32,338 votes in the last parliamentary elections in 2014. Brahampur, Dumraon, Rajpur, Dinara and Ramgarh are the other six assembly constituencies falling under the Buxar Lok Sabha seat.
Congress has fielded Sanjay Kumar Tiwari from Buxar. He will fight it out with Pradeep Dubey of BJP. Both the candidates are hoping the poll rallies by the central leadership of Congress and BJP will turn the tide in their favour. Apart from the caste factor, lack of development and job opportunities will play a key role in deciding the winner of this constituency.
