Madhepura is a Lok Sabha as well as a legislative assembly constituency in the same district. Madhepura covers Gailadh, Ghamharia and Madhepura community development blocks; Parwa Navtol, Belo, Tamot Parsa, Nadhi, Bhatkhora and Jitapur gram panchayats of Murliganj CD block. The Madhepura legislative assembly segment has 2,86,971 eligible voters of whom tere are 1,50,015 men and 1,36,947 women.
One of the 22 assembly seats won by the Lalu led Rashtriya Janata Dal in the last assembly polls in Bihar in 2010, Madhepura is currently held by Chandrashekhar who won it in 2010 by defeating Ramendra Kumar Yadav Ravi of the Janata Dal (United) by a margin of 11944 votes in a direct contest.
In that election, while Chandrashekhar had polled 72481 votes, the JD (U) candidate had received 60537 votes and was followed by Tarni Rishideo of the Congress who had obtained 10433 votes.
One of the four assembly constituencies located in the district of the same name in Bihar, Madhepura had elected Manindra Kumar Mandal of the JD (U) in both the assembly elections in 2005. Manindra Kumar Mandal is the son of former Bihar Chief Minister Bindeshwari Pd. Mandal (B P Mandal) who had drafted the Mandal Commission report that recommended reservations for other backward classes (OBCs) and changed the course of Indian politics in the 1990s. Manindra Kumar Mandal was denied ticket by Nitish Kumar in 2010 elections. It is very much to the point to underline the fact that Bihar went to the assembly polls twice in 2005 because the earlier one held in February threw hung assembly necessitating the holding of the second assembly polls in the months of October/November of the same year.
Singheshwar, Alamnagar and Bihariganj are the other three assembly segments located in the Madhepura district. The Yadav dominated Madhepura assembly went in favour of Rajendra Prasad Yadav of the RJD who had emerged victorious from the seat in 2000. B P Mandal had claimed the Madhepura assembly seat in 1962 and 1972.
Madhepura is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to form the parliamentary constituency of the same name which is currently represented by Rajesh Ranjan, popularly known as Pappu Yadav of the RJD who won the seat by defeating the sitting JD (U) MP Sharad Yadav by a margin of 56,209 votes in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Vijay Singh Kushwaha, who contested on the ticket of the BJP, came third. Bihariganj Vijay Singh Kushwaha is the husband of sitting Bihariganj JD (U) MLA Renu Kushwaha.
Other five assembly constituencies that fall under the Madhepura Lok Sabha seat are Bihariganj, Alamnagar, Sonbarsha, Saharsa and Mahishi.
Sitting MLA Chandrashekhar of RJD will take on Vijay Kumar Yadav from BJP. Yadavs are more dominant in Madhepura constituency and the Grand Alliance have an edge over the BJP candidate. But the Saffron wind is ushering in change in the people's attitude as they are now looking at issues of development and social progress in their life. Moreover, PM Modi's whirlwind campaign across Bihar might also influence the young and women voters in Madhepura. Madhepura is represented by Chandrashekhar in the assembly. Chandrashekhar became the MLA from Madhepura when he bagged 72,481 votes and won the seat in the assembly elections held in November 2010. He defeated Dr. Ramendra Kumar Yadav Ravi of JD(U) who won 60,537 votes. Madhepura assembly segment is in Madhepura district of Bihar.
