Pipra legislative assembly segment is located is in Supaul district in Supaul Lok Sabha constituency. Pipra comprises of Pipra and Kishanpur community development blocks; Veena, Laudh, Karhio, Amha, Hardi East and Hardi West gram panchayats of Supaul CD Block.
Not to be confused with the assembly constituency of the same name in the Purbi Champaran district of Bihar, Pipra, one of the five assembly segments located in the Supaul district of the state, is currently held by Sujata Devi of the Janata Dal (United) who won the seat in the last general assembly elections to the state in 2010 by defeating her nearest rival Dinbandhu Yadav of Ramvilas Paswan led Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) by an impressive margin of 14686 votes.
In that election, Sujata Devi polled 44883 votes, Dinbandhu Yadav received 30197 votes and was followed by Dileshwar Kamait who entered as an Independent and secured 19298 votes. Dileshwar Kamait was the JD (U) candidate from Supaul Lok Sabha seat in 2014 parliamentary polls. Earlier he had won the Tribeniganj assembly seat in 2009 in a byepoll on the ticket of the Janata Dal (United).Sujata Devi is the wife of former JD (U) MP from Supaul Lok Sabha seat Vishwamohan Kumar. She has been expelled from the JD (U).
In the first assembly election to Pipra seat in 2010, Surya N. Yadav, who contested on the ticket of the Congress, was relegated to the fourth place with 7647 votes. Ganga Kamat of the Bahujan Samaj party (BSP) came a distant seventh with just 2425 votes. Pipra assembly constituency came into being before the last assembly polls in Bihar in 2010 following the recommendations of the delimitation Commission.
In 2010, the RJD and Ramvilas Paswan led Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) had contested the elections jointly. However equations have changed today. The BJP and the JD (U) have snapped their alliance and LJP is now a part of the NDA, the ruling dispensation at the Centre. The JD (U), the Congress and the RJD have come together to check the Modi juggernaut.
Pipra is one of the six assembly constituencies that combine to form the parliamentary constituency of Supaul which is currently represented by Ranjita Ranjan of the Congress who won the seat by defeating his nearest rival Dileshwar Kamait of the JD (U) in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Kameshwar Choupal of the BJP came third. Ranjita Ranjan is the wife of Pappu Yadav who was elected on the ticket of the RJD from Madhepura in 2014.
Other assembly constituencies located in the Supaul Lok Sabha constituency are Nirmali, Supaul, Triveniganj, Chhatapur and Singheshwar.
Yaduvansh Kumar Yadav of RJD will take on Vishaw Mahon Kumar of BJP in Pipra constituency. It will be a tough and interesting contest to watch as both the candidates are standing here for the first time. Apart from caste matrix, youth, women and first-time voters are critical factors in this segment that comes under Supaul Lok Sabha constituency. Sujata Devi of JD(U) is the sitting MLA of the constituency who got 44,883 votes in her favour in the assembly elections of 2010.
She beat LJP's Dinbandhu Yadav by a margin of 14,686 votes. The Pipra segment (not to be confused with another Pipra in Purvi Champaram district) is a part of the Supaul LS constituency and comes under Supaul district.
