Rahulï¿½s membership has been terminated by the assembly Speaker Udai Narain Singh for voting against the official candidates in the Rajya Sabha byepolls.
Known for switching his loyalties at regular intervals, Jagdish Sharma had won the Ghosi seat in 1977, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000 and in both the elections in 2005. He entered the Bihar legislative assembly first time from Ghoshi as an MLA of Janata Party in 1977. He contested the next assembly elections in 1980 on the ticket of the BJP. His next three wins in 1985, 1990 and 1995 came as a nomine of the Congress. Jagdish Sharma, who entered the fray in 2000 and February 2005 elections as an Independent, won the 2005 October/November elections on the ticket of the JD(U). He resigned from the Ghoshi assembly seat in 2009 after his election to the Lok Sabha as a JD (U) nominee. In the bye-election held to the Ghoshi assembly constituency in 2009, his wife Shanti Sharma emerged victorious as an Independent. Shanti Sharma tried her luck as an Independent as the JD (U) refused ticket to her. However, in the next general assembly elections in 2010, Jagdish Sharmaï¿½s son Rahul Kumar managed to get the party ticket and won the elections.
Jagdish Sharma, along with Lalu Prasad, has been disqualified to contest the elections following his conviction in the fodder scam by special CBI court at Ranchi.
