Strategically nestled between Kolkata and the South 24 Parganas district, Diamond Harbour is a vital stronghold for the TMC.

Diamond Harbour has also turned into an epicentre of West Bengal's political battleground, with the TMC projecting it as a “model constituency”, while the opposition labelling the constituency as a “laboratory of violence”.

A resounding victory here would not just reaffirm the leadership of the TMC MP, the nephew of party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, but also fortify his standing within the TMC, especially when the party is grappling with internal rifts.
