So far as the upcoming 2016 assembly election to Hariharpara seat is concerned, it all depends on how the new equations take shape. Congress would like to contest the seat if there is an alliance with the TMC. However, if there is a division of votes between TMC and Congress, it will stand the CPIM in good stead. Despite a handsome rise in the percent of votes gained by the BJP in 2014 parliamentary elections in the state, the BJP is not competitive force in Hariharpara.
