The Left parties have never lost an election in the Hingalganj assembly constituency. Despite the strong wave of change in 2011, the Left front was able to win the seat, albeit by a reduced margin. An alliance with the Congress may stand the Left in good stead. However, the prospects of BJP cutting into their votes are scaring both TMC and the Left.
