Trinamool Congress (TMC) still enjoys the dominant sway in the Sreerampur assembly constituency where CPM has not been a dominant force even in their hey-days. There would be four-cornered contest in the upcoming assembly elections. Though the BJP has performed well in this assembly segment in 2014 Lok Sabha elections by polling 22.66 per cent votes riding on the Modi wave, it lacks a strong organisational network. Added to this, Modi wave has substantially waned now.

Physician Sudipto Roy is the sitting TMC legislator of Sreerampur which he retained in 2011 by defeating Partha Sarathi Rej of Communist Party of India by a massive margin of 51,691 votes. In that while Sudipto Roy, who was also elected from the seat in a bye-election in 2009, received 97,540 votes, the CPI nominee got 45,849 votes. BJP’s Vidyasagar Pandey was placed third with just 7,101 votes.
The bye election in 2009 was necessitated due to the election of then sitting TMC legislator, Ratna De (Nag), to the Lok Sabha. Ratna De who again won the Hooghly parliamentary seat in 2014, has won the Sreerampur assembly seat in 2001 and 2006. Earlier her father Gopal Das Nag had emerged victorious in 1967, 1971 and 1972.
