Chief Minister Raghubar Das is contesting the polls from the Jamshedpur (East) seat, where his former cabinet colleague Saryu Roy is contesting as an Independent candidate. Roy had resigned as a minister last month after his name did not figure in the BJP's candidate list.

Roy, who won the 2014 assembly elections from Jamshedpur (West), filed nomination from Jamshedpur (East) to challenge Das. Nitish Kumar's JD(U) withdrew its candidate from the seat in support of Roy.

The Congress has fielded Gourav Vallabh from Jamshedpur (East). State Rural Development Minister Neelkanth Singh Munda is contesting from the Khunti (ST) seat. The two seats are among the twenty assembly constituencies going to polls in the second-phase on December 7.

The five-phase elections to the 81-member House will end on December 20. Counting will take place on December 23.
