Uday Narayan Choudhary, who lost this election, has won Imamganj seat four times — 1990, 2000, 2005, and 2010. The contest between the duo was expected to be tough as they both are Dalit leaders with considerable clout. Both the leaders were earlier part of the JDU of Nitish Kumar.

After massive defeat in 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Nitish Kumar took the responsibility and stepped down from the top post. Jitan Ram Manjhi then became the next chief minister. Months later, he was asked to step down to make way for Nitish Kumar. When Manjhi refused, he was asked to seek a vote of confidence. He, however, resigned from the chief minister post and quit the JDU. Later, he formed his own political outfit – Hindustani Awam Morcha.

In 2015, JDU then decided to contest assembly polls with the RJD. Both the parties together swept the elections and formed the government with Nitish Kumar as chief minister and Tejashwi Yadav as Deputy Chief Minister. Two years later, the JDU broke the alliance with RJD and returned to NDA. Uday Narayan Choudhary,who was until then with the JDU, protested the re-alliance with the BJP and left Nitish Kumar. In 2019, he joined the RJD.
