From the Mahagathbandhan, the Belaganj seat was allotted to the RJD, whose sitting MLA has been winning the constituency since 2000. The rival NDA camp allowed JD(U) to contest from the seat. The latter has fielded Abhay Kumar Sinha to take on RJD’s Surendra Prasad Yadav. In the 2015 assembly polls, Yadav had defeated his nearest rival – Sharim Ali of HAM(S) by a margin of over 30,000 votes.

The upcoming elections in Bihar is the first major electoral battle after the outbreak of COVID-19. The pre-poll surveys have given the edge to the JD(U)-BJP-led NDA camp, despite stating the possibility of an anti-incumbency factor against Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
