"I wanted to become an MP because I thought these people who are in a position have access to resources. They do not use their position for the benefit of people. If you organise yourself, you can do a lot," he said.

Jha lost the Lok Sabha election from Bettiah in Bihar in 2014 as a Janata Dal-United candidate. He unsuccessfully contested as an independent in 2004 and on a LJP ticket in 2009 from the same constituency.
