There are several high-voltage centers this year. Jadavpur assembly constituency is one of them. CPIM candidate Sujan Chakraborty won the 2016 assembly elections. At that time, the influence of the BJP in the state was not that prevalent. But since the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP has emerged as an opposition party in the state.

However, Babul Supriyo has accused the police of creating fear in the minds of people. Meenakshi Mukherjee, a youth leader of CPIM, a candidate of the United Front in Nandigram, was barred from campaigning on Sunday (March 28). On Monday (March 29), Rinku Naskar, a BJP candidate from Jadavpur, who joined the BJP from the left, accused the police of obstructing the campaign.
