In Jamalpur, which was once a citadel of the left Front, Trinamool Congress has made its presence forcefully felt. The latter began making inroads in the constituency from 2010. The CPM has been losing ground since then. As far as the coming assembly elections are concerned, both the parties will slug it out in a fiercely fought contest. TMC has the edge but can ill-afford to be complacent.
|Name of the Candidate||Party Name||Results|

|Kishore Kumar Biswas||JDP||1424|
Jamalpur is presently held by Trinamool Congress whose candidate Ujjal Pramanick emerged victorious from this seat in 2011 by defeating the then sitting CPIM MLA Samar Hazra by just 2543 votes in a bipolar contest.
