Now that the NDA has won an absolute majority in Bihar, it is necessary to tell you about the area which has contributed the most and that is the area of Champaran. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rallies were also held in Motihari and Bagaha in Champaran, adjoining Nepal. If East Champaran and West Champaran merge these two districts, the NDA got 17 seats out of 21. Of these, 15 seats belong to BJP alone, while two JDU got.
At the same time, the Mahagathbandhan was badly defeated in Champaran, the land of Mahatma Gandhi’s movement. This entire region has been transformed into a BJP stronghold for more than a decade. In Bihar, BJP state president Sanjay Jaiswal and the party’s national election officer Radha Mohan Singh are MPs from here, so saving his stronghold for the party was also a matter of prestige, which he did well. Radha Mohan Singh has also been the state president.
In this way, if you merge the entire Tirhut division, then here too the NDA, especially the BJP, has got a huge lead. NDA got 31 seats in Tirhut, out of which 25 were won by BJP alone. The RJD had to settle for 13 and the Congress with only 2 seats. Prominent among these are the victories of young MLA Rinku Singh from Valmiki Nagar and Bhagirathi Devi from Ramnagar, who is also the Dalit face of the BJP in North Bihar and was formerly a sweeper.
The state tourism minister Pramod Kumar from Motihari in Champaran registered an easy victory. State Cooperative Minister Rana Randhir won from Madhuban assembly constituency. This will be Pramod Kumar’s fourth consecutive term and Rana Randhir’s second consecutive term. The victory of JDU’s popular candidate Shalini Mishra from Kesariya is also important. In one of these seats, Muslims are more than 30%, that is Shivhar. RJD from there Won.
‘Bahubali’ leader Anand Mohan and Lovely Anand’s son Chetan Anand emerged victorious from Shivahar. He defeated JDU sitting MLA Mohammad Sarfuddin. This is the same area where a candidate named Srinarayan Singh was murdered. At the same time, there are 6 such seats in Tirhut division where the Yadav population is more than 30%, out of which 4 were given to RJD and 2 to BJP. This shows that the BJP broke the caste cycle created by the Bihari parties.
Bihar’s Champaran region is again proving to be pivotal to the BJP’s dreams of retaining the state. For the past three elections now, this area has stood by the BJP against the prevailing trends in 2010 and 2015. # VerdictWithNews18 @suhasmunshi writes. https://t.co/TzFEd9wFUD

If we talk about the 2015 elections in Tirhut division, then at that time the BJP alone came with 18 seats. The JDU-RJD, which was fighting together in that election, managed to win 23 seats. The BJP had won only 53 seats in that election, and a third of it was in this region. Further back, in 2010, the NDA got an unprecedented 45 out of 49 seats in this division. In this way, Tirhut has been a BJP stronghold due to Champaran.
If we talk about every phase in entire Bihar, then there were 71 seats in the first phase, 94 seats in the second and 78 seats in the third. NDA’s seat share with every stage Kept on growing Gone. These were 29.6%, 52.1% and 66.7% respectively. According to our estimates, the seat share of the Mahagathbandhan kept decreasing with every step and stood at 67.6%, 46.8% and 26.9% respectively. Voting for the three phases was held on October 28, November 3 and 7.
Champaran is the region which remained with the BJP even in the most difficult times in 2015. This is the area from where the lotus blossomed in the Lok Sabha in 1989 itself. This is an area where party leaders were active even during the Jan Sangh days. Atal Bihari Vajpayee came here and arrested him during the Emergency. In such a situation, under the guidance of two senior BJP leaders, many young MLAs have been elected from here as well as women. The area will have a good presence in the Bihar Legislative Assembly.
