Though currently held by Trinamool Congress, Sagardighi is poised to witness a triangular fight between TMC, Congress and Left Front. As is the case with most of the constituencies of Murshidabad district, Adhir Chowdhury, Congress MP from Behrampur, holds a strong sway in Sagardighi. A division of votes between Congress and TMC will enhance the fortunes of the CPM. BJP is not a serious challenger in Sagardighi.

Sagardighi is currently held by the TMC whose candidate Subrata Saha won it in 2011 by defeating his nearest CPM rival Ismail Sekh by 4576 votes in a bipolar contest. While in that election, Subrata Saha, a minister in the Mamata government, polled 54,708 votes, the CPM candidate received 50,134 votes and was followed by independent candidate Aminul Islam who got 22,402 votes. Aminul Islam was backed by Adhir Chowdhury in spite of the fact that Congress was in alliance with the TMC in 2011.
