Barabanki: Barabanki is one of the 80 Lok Sabha constituencies of Uttar Pradesh and is one of the most interesting fights this time with the changed political dynamics due to withdrawal of the BJP's sitting Member of Parliament, Upendra Singh Rawat from the election race. The withdrawal came after the circulation of an alleged obscene video. The seat has been won by Congress for four times and BJP has emerged victorious thrice. Traditionally it has been a Congress stronghold, however BJP and SP have managed to build inroads and are playing significant roles in shaping the political structure of the seat.

Barabanki is a reserved constituency for Scheduled Caste candidates and includes five assembly segments of Kursi, Zaidpur, Haiderbagh, Barabanki Sadar, and Ramnagar. The seat is expected to go for polls on May 20, during phase 5 of Lok Sabha elections.
