Trinamool Congress has consolidated its position in the Ashoknagar assembly constituency and is comfortably placed. Apart from taking a lead from the assembly segment in 2014 Lok Sabha elections, TMC had also won the 2015 election to Municipality of Ashoknagar which is a part of the constituency. It is pertinent to note that BJP entered the West Bengal assembly first time by winging the Ashoknagar assembly seat in 1999.
