Trinamool Congress has been hit by the charges of corruption against former state transport minister and sitting TMC Kamarhati MLA Madan Mitra who is in jail for his alleged role in the infamous Saradha scam. Internal factionalism rules the roost in the party in this assembly constituency. Though the CPM had been holding sway in the constituency since 1977 and lost only in 2011, the party is consistently losing ground since its crushing defeat in 2011. This enhances the chances of TMC which has also won in 2015 Kamarhati municipality, a part of the constituency.
