Internal factionalism in the Trinamool Congress may dent the prospects of the party in the coming assembly elections. Akhil Giri, the sitting Ramnnagar MLA, and Sisir Kumar Adhikari, the incumbent TMC MP from Kanthi Lok Sabha seat, are at odds with each other. However, CPM is still not able to win the confidence of the people who were disenchanted with its long rule of 34 years. While the BJP has some areas of influence in the constituency, the Congress has been reduced to a non-entity and would hope for an alliance with the Left Front to materialize.

Currently Ramnagar is represented in the legislative assembly of West Bengal by Akhil Giri who avenged his defeat by trouncing the then sitting CPM MLA Swadesh Ranjan Nayak in 2011 by a margin of 16559 votes in 2011. In that election while 93,801 votes were polled by Akhil Giri, Swadesh Ranjan Nayak received 77,242 votes and was followed by BJP’s Satya Ranjan Das who got 4,507 votes.
