Despite overwhelming anti-incumbency sentiment, Trinamool Congress is on a strong wicket in Uluberia Uttar assembly constituency thanks to the failure of the opposition parties to connect with the voters. The rise of BJP has put the CPM in a weak position because the former has the potential of eating into the latter’s votes. If BJP maintains the vote share received by it in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, it will be helping the TMC.
