Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist [CPI-ML] has done reasonably well in the Bihar elections. The party has won at least two seats so far. CPI-ML had no representation in the last Assembly.

In Darauli in West Bihar, the party’s candidate has won by 13,000 votes, while in Balrampur CPI-ML has won by a margin of 22,000.

The Balrampur candidate, Mahboob Alam, is also a member of the highest decision making body of the party, the Central Committee (CC).

“Mahboob had lost by a very tiny margin of just 2500 votes to an independent who also got BJP support last time, the same independent is the JDU candidate this time,” said CC member Kavita Krishnan.

“At Ziradei (west Bihar) our candidate is Amarjit Kushwaha, he is leading over a JD-U candidate,” Ms Krishnan said.

Mr Kushwaha is a leading youth activist of the party.
