One of the ten assembly segments located in the Madhubani district of Bihar, Phulparas assembly constituency is currently held by Guljar Devi who won the seat for the Janata Dal (RJD) by defeating her nearest Rashtriya Janata Dal rival Virendra Kumar Chaudhary by a margin of 12344 votes in the last general assembly polls to the Bihar legislative assembly held in 2010. In that election, whereas Guljar Devi polled 36113 votes, Virendra Kumar Chaudhary received 23769 votes. Anita Yadav, who contested on the ticket of the Congress, was relegated to the ninth place with 4677 votes.
In 2010 the JD (U) went to the polls in alliance with the BJP. However, today equations have changed. As things stand now, the BJP and the JD (U) have parted ways and the Lok Janashakti Party (LJP), the ally of the RJD in the last assembly elections, is now a part of the BJP led NDA. The JD (U), the RJD and the Congress have joined forces to fight the BJP.
Earlier, Guljar Devi's husband, Deo Nath Yadav was elected from the Phulparas assembly seat in both the elections in 2005 on the ticket of Samajwadi Party. 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. Deo Nath Yadav was also elected from the seat in 1995 on the ticket of the Congress by virtue of his victory over the sitting Janata Dal MLA Ram Kumar Yadav.
Deo Nath was convicted of murder by a court of law. Dhanik Lal Mandal, former governor of Haryana, was winner of the Phulparas seat in 1967 and 1969. His son Bharat Bhushan Mandal lost to Deo Nath Yadav in 2005.
Phulparas is one of the six assembly constituencies that unite to create the parliamentary constituency of Jhanjharpur which is currently represented by Birendra Kumar Chaudhary of the BJP who won it by defeating his nearest rival and sitting MP and RJD candidate Mangani Lal Mandal in the last Lok Sabha general elections in 2014
Ram Sunder Yadav from BJP is taking on the sitting JD(U) MLA Gulzar Devi in Phulparas. A section of voters in this constituency feel the alliance of Mahagathbandhan as "rank opportunism". There is anger within the Yadav community here which is underlined from the fact that they have launched an intensive campaign against Nitish under the banner of "Yadav Swabhiman Manch" (YSM).
Through this campaign, the fellow Yadav class is being appealed to first go through five major "actions" of the Nitish Kumar government against Yadav before deciding to support him. Phulparas is represented in the assembly by Guljar Devi of JD(U) who defeated RJD's Virendra Kumar Chaudhary in the elections held in November 2010.
Guljar Devi won 36,113 votes as compared to 23,769 votes won by Virendra Kumar Chaudhary. Phulparas segment is a part of Jhanjharpur Lok Sabha constituency though it comes under Madhubani district.
