Lok Janshakti Party of Ram Vilas Paswan has a 100% strike rate as the party won all the six seats it had contested. Among the Mahagathbandhan parties, which include Congress, Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD), Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), Hindustan Awam Morcha (HAM) and Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP), the RJD has performed very badly failed to even open its account. The Mahagathbandhan won only the Kishanganj seat.
