Patna: Election Commission on Saturday announced poll dates for 40 Lok Sabha Elections 2024 in Bihar. The state will have seven phase polls, starting from April 19 and ending on June 1, 2024. The counting of votes will be taken up on June 4, 2024. Bihar is number four in the country in terms of Lok Sabha seats which perhaps explains why the elections in the state are spread over various phases.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls BJP-JDU alliance made a clean sweep, winning 39 of the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state. Mahagathbandhan alliance of Congress, RJD and RSLP won the Kishanganj seat.

Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar, who was founding member of the I.N.D.I.A alliance, he parted ways months before the Lok Sabha elections and returned to NDA fold. He ended the alliance with RJD, Congress dealing a severe blow to the opposition parties. The alliance has not been able to seal the seat sharing even as NDA parties have decided their formula. AIMIM will contest the elections from 11 Lok Sabha seats
