The coming assembly election to the Khandaghosh seat will witness triangular contest among Trinamool Congress, CPIM and BJP which is buoyed by its increase in its vote share in West Bengal in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The CPIM has weakened due to the desertion of its sitting MLA Nabin Chandra Bag who has recently joined TMC.

Once a citadel of the CPM, Khandaghosh assembly constituency is currently represented by Nabin Chandra Bag who won the seat in 2011 for the party whose candidates have been elected from the seat since 1977.
