The Patna Sahib constituency, one of the 40 in Bihar, is one of the most closely watched seats in the state as last year’s winner Shatrughan Sinha had turned against his party BJP and has been denied a ticket.

Actor-turned-politician, Sinha had defeated Congress’s Kunal Singh in 2014 by more than two lakh votes.

This time the BJP had fielded Ravi Shankar Prasad from the constituency and Sinha had vowed he will also contest from the seat. Currently, BJP’s Ravi Shankar Prasad is leading in the constituency.

The voting for Bihar’s 40 Parliamentary seats took place in seven phases beginning April 11. The last phase was held on May 19.
