About Valmiki Nagar:

It lies in the West Champaran District, an administrative district located in the Tirhut Division of Bihar. With Bettiah as the administrative seat of the district, the West Champaran district is part of the Red Corridor. Owing to the fluid border this district shares with the neighbouring country of Nepal, this region is prone to high levels of corruption and crime, including illicit dealings of marijuana and weapons. This has resulted in extreme political instability. This region has a glorious history. According to mythology, the great sage Valmiki wrote the epic Ramayana in this region. In the 20th century history of anti-colonial struggle, West Champaran was a prominent region, as it was in this district that Mahatma Gandhi had begun the first traces of his famous Satyagraha Andolan.

Present Political Scenario:

 JDU citadel

This is a JDU stronghold from where Baidyanath Prasad Mahto had won the 2009 elections with close to 2 lakh votes. This time there is rebellion within JDU against Mahato’s candidature as agriculture minister Narendra Singh and Transport minister Bishen Patel have been raising a red flag against the sitting MP. BJP has nominated Narkatiyaganj MLA, Satish Chandra Dubey for this seat who is expecting big leads from his home constituency and Ramnagar assembly segment. The split in Muslim votes this time is also a key factor, especially in assembly segments like Sikta.
