One of the four assembly constituencies located in the district of Buxar in Bihar, Dinara is currently held by Dil Mani Devi Kunwar of the BJP who had defeated her nearest rival and sitting MLA Ajit Chaudhary of the Lalu Yadavï¿½s Rashtirya Janata Dal (RJD) by an impressive margin of 20342 votes in the last general assembly elections to Bihar in 2010.

Dadan Yadav had unsuccessfully contested the Buxar Lok Sabha seat in 2009 as an independent but he managed to secure 122975 votes against 132614 votes received by the RJD nominee Jagada Nand Singh, the winner of the seat.

Rajendra Singh, considered as one of the chief architects of BJP’s victory in Jharkhand Assembly elections, has jumped the poll fray in Dinara constituency. A resident of Rohtas district of Bihar, 49-year old Singh is presently the Sangthan Mantri (organising general secretary) of BJP’s Jharkhand unit. A full-time RSS pracharak, Singh was deputed to BJP around a decade back. Last time, the BJP did not contest Dinara seat as it went to alliance partner JD(U) under seat-sharing arrangement. Jay Kumar Singh of JD(U) had won this seat in 2010 Assembly elections.
