There will be a direct contest between the Trinamool Congress and CPIM in the coming assembly poll to Metiaburuz in 2016. Despite not so good performance of the TMC, the party still enjoys an edge in the constituency. Though Congress is a strong force in its former Garden Reach MLA Abdul Khaleque Mollah, the party is still lagging behind. BJP doesnít stand a chance.
|Name of the Candidate||Party Name||Results|

Metiaburuz is currently held by Trinamool Congressís Mumtaz Begum who had won the seat in 2011 by defeating Badruddoza Mollah of the CPIM by 6594 votes. While Mumtaz Begum, an ex Congress councillor of Kolkata Municipal Corporation before joining TMC, polled 55,003 votes, the CPM nominee received 48,409 votes and was followed by Abdul Khaleque Mollah, then incumbent Congress MLA from the erstwhile Garden Reach assembly constituency.
Abdul Khaleque Mollah, who entered the fray as an Independent after the seat was allotted to the TMC, got 24,143 votes. The BJP which had fielded a Muslim candidate was distantly placed with just 3139 votes.
