One of the eleven assembly constituencies located in the Muzaffarpur district of Bihar, Paroo is currently held by Ashok Kumar Singh of the BJP who retained the seat in the last general assembly elections in Bihar in 2010 by defeating Mithilesh Prasad Yadav of the Lalu Prasad led Rashtirya Janata Dal (RJD) by a margin of 19027 votes. While Ashok Kumar Singh received 53609 votes, Mithilesh Prasad Yadav polled 34582 votes and was followed by Anunay Kumar Singh of the Congress with 11337 votes. Anunay Kumar Singh was the runner-up from the seat in 2000.
While Ashok Kumar Singh had also claimed the Paroo assembly seat in October in 2005 by defeating the sitting MLA Mithilesh Prasad Yadav to whom he had lost in February poll to the seat same year. It is pertinent to note 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 month of November of the same year.
Mithilesh Prasad Yadav was also elected from the seat in 1995 and 2000. While his win in 1995 came as a candidate of the Janata Dal candidate, in 2000 he was in the contest on the ticket of the RJD which was formed by Lalu Prasad after parting his ways from the Janata Dal which later disintegrated into several splinter groups.
Paroo is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to form the parliamentary constituency of Vaishali which is currently represented by Rama Kishore Singh of the Lok Jana Shakti Party (LJP) who won the seat by defeating his nearest rival and sitting RJD MP Raghuvansh Prasad Singh by a margin of 99267 votes in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections which resulted in the formation of NDA government at the centre.
The LJP, which entered into an alliance with the BJP just before the Lok Sabha polls, won six parliamentary seats in Bihar in 2014 riding on the Modi wave that was sweeping the country at that time. Earlier Raghuvansh Prasad was elected from the Vaishali parliamentary constituency five times in a row (1996, 1998, 1999, 2004 and 2009).
Sitting BJP MLA Ashok Kumar Singh is contesting again in his home turf Paroo which is part of Vaishali Lok Sabha constituency.
He is the unanimous choice of BJP for Paroo and will face a tough battle from Shankar Prasad of RJD.
BJP's Ashok Kumar Singh was elected as the MLA of Paroo in the 2010 assembly election.
He got 53,609 votes, while Mithilesh Prasad Yadav of RJD, who was the runner-up, won 34,582 votes. Paroo is in Muzaffarpur district and is a part of the Vaishali Lok Sabha constituency. While caste factor will be exploited well by the RJD candidate, Ashok Kumar will root for development and other social issues to gain an upper hand over his opponent.
