He first hit the portals of the Bihar assembly by winning the seat in 2003 in a byepoll which was necessitated due to the death of then sitting Sitamarhi BJP MLA Harishankar Prasad who was declared elected from the seat in 2000 by the Supreme Court which set aside the election of the RJD MLA Shahid Ali Khan in 2000.
