After its victory in 2011, Trinamool Congress (TMC) has been able to establish its hegemony in the Khejuri assembly constituency. The CPIM, on the other hand, has lost ground due to desertion of its cadres. In the coming 2016 assembly elections to West Bengal, TMC has the edge in this violence prone assembly constituency. While the BJP is not a competitive force, the Congress does not stand a chance.
