Though CPM was able to win the newly created assembly constituency of Rampurhat in 2011, the party’s vote share has fallen and its organizational network is no longer robust. On the other hand TMC doesn’t have the luxury of Congress votes as was the case in 2011 when the party was in alliance with the latter. BJP has some pockets of influence.

|None of the Above||None of the Above||4052|
|Ashis Kumar Pal||MPI||1530|

Rampurhat is currently represented in the Legislative Assembly by CPIM whose legislator Dhiren Bagdi won it in 2011 by defeating his nearest rival Parikhit Bala of Trinamool Congress by a margin of 4318 votes. In that only election to the seat, while 77512 votes were polled in favour of Dhiren Bagdi, the TMC candidate received 73194 and was followed by BJP’s Shibnath Saha who got 8,786 votes.
