Dinara Vidhan Sabha seat is situated in the Rohtas district of Bihar. The Dinara Assembly constituency falls under the Buxar Lok Sabha seat. It has been a Janata Dal (United) (JDU) dominated seat for years. However, RJD's Vijay Kumar Mandal won the seat in Bihar Assembly Elections 2020. Voting for the Dinara election took place on October 28 in the first phase of Bihar Assembly Elections 2020. Counting of votes for the Bihar polls took place on November 10.
Bihar went to polls in three phases. Phase 1 voting took place on October 28 in 71 Assembly constituencies. The candidates for the Dinara Assembly Election 2020 included two-time winner and sitting JDU MLA Jai Kumar Singh, who was fighting against RJD's Vijay Kumar Mandal and LJP's Rajendra Pratap Singh among other candidates. The winner of Bihar Assembly Election 2015 was JDU's Jai Kumar Singh, who defeated Rajendra Prasad Singh, earlier with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Bihar Assembly Elections 2020 are the first major polls amid COVID-19 pandemic. While most were looking at it as a two-way fight between the NDA (JDU+BJP) and the Mahagathbandhan (RJD+Congress+Left), the LJP this time decided to go alone with Chirag Paswan at the helm of affairs in the party. But it was the AIMIM that managed to bag 5 seats in this fiercely fought battle.
