A stronghold of Adhir Chowdhury, Congress MP from Behrampur, Beldanga is all set for a triangular fight between among the Congress, RSP and Trinamool Congress in the coming 2016 assembly elections in the state. As things stand today, the Congress has an edge over other political parties. As is the case with many assembly constituencies in the Murshidabad district, the BJP is not a competitive force in Beldanga.
