That Trinamool Congress continues to be dominant force in Naihati assembly constituency can be gauged from the fact that in the 2015 civic poll to Naihati municipality, a part of the assembly constituency, TMC had emerged victorious. The party is all set to capitalize on the division of votes among the opposition parties in the 2016 parliamentary elections. In the case of an alliance with the Congress, CPM may be able to give a tough fight.
