This violence prone assembly constituency is under the control of the CPM which has been winning it since 1982 by huge margins. In spite of the wave of change in 2011, the seat gave a massive lead of 33842 votes to the party in the last assembly election. However, with the TMC at the helm of power in West Bengal, the CPM cadres who used to intimidate the TMC supporters are on the back foot. Their place has now been taken by the TMC activists. There is no place for BJP in Keshpur which has made its name as the killing fields of the political parties.
