Madhubani (Lok Sabha constituency)
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (December 2010)|
Before 1976, Madhubani assembly segment formed part of eastern Lok Sabha constituency of the district of same name, but after 1976 the eastern Lok Sabha constituency was renamed as Jhanjharpur because Madhubani assembly segment was taken out of it to be merged into former Jainagar Lok Sabha constituency. Jainagar Lok Sabha constituency included western assembly segments of Madhubani district besides Jale assembly segment from Darbhanga district. After inclusion of Madhubani assembly segment, Jainagar Lok Sabha constituency was renamed as Madhubani and Ladania CD block and adjoining areas were taken out of it to be merged into newly formed Jhanjharpur Lok Sabha constituency in order to compensate for the loss of Madhubani assembly segment. After this reorganization, communist vote bank in the district was bifurcated and CPI had to face greater difficulties in winning the eastern Lok Sabha constituency of this district which was won by CPI candidate Bhogendra Jha in 1967 and 1971.
