Barkagaon (Vidhan Sabha constituency) is an assembly constituency in the Indian state of Jharkhand under Hazaribagh district. It consists of three blocks namely Barkagaon, Keredari and Patratu.

Indian National Congress MLAs in Jharkhand claimed that their colleague, Barkagaon's current MLA Nirmala Devi, was arrested on 25 August, 2015 for a murder in the Hazaribagh district 9 days before.[1] Fellow MLA, Irfan Ansari of Jamtara constituency, condemned the arrest, alleging that the government is trying to attack INC legislators by falsely accusing them of crimes they never committed.
