Both Trinamool Congress and CPM are equally poised to claim the Monteswar assembly seat which was won by latter in 2011 due to the choice of the candidate by the TMC not going down well with its supporters. A division of votes between TMC and Congress can prove beneficial to CPM whose dominance in the constituency dates back to 1977, since when the party has been winning the seat. The BJP is not a force to reckon with in the Monteswar assembly constituency.
|Name of the Candidate||Party Name||Results|
|Chaudhuri Md. Hedayatullah||CPM||83428|
CPM’s Chaudhuri Md. Hedayatullah is the sitting MLA of Monteswar which he retained in 2011 by defeating his nearest TMC rival Abu Ayesh Mondal by a not-so-high margin of 3298 votes. In that election, Hedayatullah, who was also the winner in 2006, polled 81,822 votes and Abu Ayash Mondal got 78,524 votes. All the other contestants were nowhere near the first two and lost their deposits.
Earlier Abu Ayesh had represented the Monteswar Assembly seat from 1991 to 2006 on behalf of the CPM. In 2906 he had successfully contested the Katwa parliamentary seat in a bye-election as a CPM nominee. After being denied ticket in 2009, he switched to TMC.
