Out of the six wards of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) that constitute the Kasba assembly constituency, four were won by the Trinamool Congress and the rest were claimed by CPM in the municipal elections in 2015. However, assembly elections are a completely different ballgame altogether. In all likelihood, the coming election to Kasba will witness a keen contest between TMC and CPM. BJP will try to make its presence forcefully felt in the coming elections.
