Palamu Parliamentary Constituency Election and Results Update

Formerly known as the Palamau Lok Sabha constituency, Palamu is one of the 14 Lok Sabha seats which belong to the Maoist-affected state of Jharkhand.This constituency is reserved for candidates belonging to the Scheduled Castes. The Palamu Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 13) has a total of 1,417,375 electorates out of which 662,571 are females and 754,804 are males according to Election Commission of India 2009 reports. The Palamu Lok Sabha constituency is spread over the entire district of Garhwa and portions of the Palamu district.

Out of the six legislative assembly segments which make up Palamu, Garhwa and Bhawanathpur belong to the Garhwa district, while the remaining four Vidhan Sabha segments cover the entire district of Palamu. The Chhatarpur Assembly constituency is the only segment to be reserved for the marginalised sections of the society. Although a stronghold of the Congress since its formative years, the Palamu seat has remained with the BJP for the most part of the neo-liberal period, starting from the 1991 Lok Sabha elections. The two most prominent leaders here are Braj Mohan Ram of the BJP and Kamala Kumari of the Congress, who were elected as MPs from this Lok Sabha seat several times. Both the districts of Garhwa and Palamu have been identified as economically underdeveloped districts of the country, thus coming under the Government of India’s Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.
