Witnessing tough fights between the two national parties, namely the Congress and the BJP, is the Parliamentary constituency of Lohardaga. It is one of the 14 parliamentary seats allotted to the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand. This constituency is reserved for ST candidates. According to Election Commission of India 2009 data the total electorates in the Lohardaga Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 12) were 981,666 of which 475,585 are females and 506,081 are males.
It is spread over a portion of the Ranchi district and the entire districts of Gumla and Lohardaga. Out of the five assembly segments which constitute this parliamentary constituency of Lohardaga, Mandar and Lohardaga lie within the geographic boundaries of the Ranchi and Lohardaga districts, respectively. Each of the five assembly constituencies is reserved for the Scheduled Tribes candidates. These districts, which house the Lohardaga constituency, are part of the Red Corridor, owing to the massive number of Maoist insurgencies witnessed in these regions. Although this area is renowned for its rich mineral reserves such as bauxite and laterite, these districts of Gumla, Lohardaga and Ranchi have been identified as economically backward districts. These are thus being funded through the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.
