On October 16, altogether 32 seats in Bihar go to polls in the second phase elections in the politically crucial state where the BJP is up against the so-called grand alliance of the JD(U)-RJD-Congress.

The districts going for polls are Kaimur, Rohtas, Arwal, Jehanabad, Aurangabad and Gaya.

In a violence-free first phase election for 49 constituencies an estimated 57% had cast their votes on October 12.

As the poll battle – which many say will shape up the remaining part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure, is all set to enter the second phase, here are some interesting facts about the 456 candidates in the fray and the registered 86.13 lakh voters in the first phase.
