One of the seven assembly constituencies located in the district of Bhojpur in the state of Bihar, Jagdishpur is currently represented by Dinesh Kumar Singh of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) who received 55560 votes to defeat Sribhagwan Singh Kushwaha of the JD (U) by a margin of 10186 votes in the last assembly polls in 2010. The Lalu led RJD, which contested the elections in alliance with the Lok Janashakti party (LJP), was able to win only 22 seats in 2010.

In 2010, the BJP did not field its candidate as it was contesting the assembly elections in alliance with the JD (U).

In a bid to survive, the RJD, the JD (U) and the Congress have come together to check the BJP.
Earlier Sribhagwan Singh has been elected from the Jagdishpur assembly constituency in 2000 and both the assembly polls in 2005. While In 2000 he claimed the seat for Samata Party (SAP), the earlier incarnation of JD (U), his wins in both the elections came as a nominee of the JD (U).
