Saran Lok Sabha Election 2014 Summary

Known for electing only members belonging to the Rajput and the Yadav communities, the Saran Lok Sabha seat has, once again, proved to be a hot-bed of political battles in the recently-held Parliamentary elections 2014. This seat saw a top notch triangular rivalry between former Chief Minister Rabri Devi of the RJD former Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy of BJP and Vice-Chairman of Bihar Legislative Council, Salim Parvez, a leader of the JD (U). Parmatma Singh of the AAP was fielded as a candidate in Saran, but could not make much inroad in the electorate. This seat held further political relevance as for four times, it has been won by RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, who was convicted in a fodder scam case last year. Rajiv Pratap Rudy won the elections, bagging 355120 votes. He defeated his closest rival Rabri Devi by a margin of 40948 votes. The election campaigns of all the candidates were clearly along lines of caste and religion. As the elections have made evident, the Yadav and Muslim votes in the region were bagged by the RJD. Even the presence of a Muslim candidate Parvez, could not much alter the voter equation in the region. Rabri, who lost in two constituencies in the Bihar Assembly elections of 2010, had to defend the prestige and victory of sitting MP, Lalu Yadav in the Saran constituency. She met formidable opposition in the form of Rudy, who not only rode on the Rajput votes in the region, but also on the 'Modi wave', which cast a spell on the nation. Rudy, a former MP from this constituency, championed the cause of the poor people of Saran with his door-to-door campaigns. Rudy also benefitted heavily from the divorce with the JD (U), which was decided by Nitish Kumar last year. Rudy cut into the vote-share of Salim Parvez of the JD (U), which affected the latter quite prominently. It seems that, although belonging to the backward castes himself, Parvez could not strike a chord either with the Dalits, or the Muslims in the constituency.

A seat whose fate has always been decided along caste and community affiliations, Saran did not present a welcoming change in this election. Although Rudy won for the third time, increasing his political prospects, the caste-religion-community balance remains intact in Saran in Bihar.

In Saran, Rajiv Pratap Rudy of Bharatiya Janata Party won the Lok Sabha election defeating Rabri Devi, wife of RJD's chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, by a slim margin of 40948 votes. Rajiv garnered 355120 votes, while Rabri Devi had to contend with 314172 votes only. Saleem Perwez of JD(U) came third with 107008 votes.

Rajiv has contest four LS elections from this constituency. He had won in 1996 and 1999. The RJD chief had worked hard to see his wife and daughter win from their respective constituencies, but luck failed to shine on both of them.

The Saran Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 20) has a total of 1,268,338 electorates out of which 580,605 are females and 687,733 are males according to Election Commission of India 2009 reports.

Following the Delimitation Commission's order to delimit parliamentary constituencies, this constituency came into existence as recently as 2008, and has Lalu Prasad Yadav as its Member of Parliament, the chief of Rashtriya Janata Dal party.
