Dum Dum Assembly Elections 2016

The Trinamool Congress has an edge over its rivals in Dum Dum assembly constituency which was once a stronghold of the Left. In the last assembly election in 2011, TMC has wrested the seat from the CPM which had fielded its heavyweight candidate Gautam Deb. While the upcoming assembly election to Dum Dum will likely to be between TMC and CPM, the BJP will try to shed its image as a reluctant participator.
