The BJP, which won 18 seats in West Bengal in the 2019 general elections, may win 23 seats in 2024 while its rival TMC, which secured 22 seats the last time, may be reduced to just 19 seats.

According to the Opinion Poll, TMC leader Mahua Moitra may lose her Krishnanagar constituency to BJP this time, in a major setback to the party. She was expelled by the Lok Sabha Speaker in connection with alleged cash-for-query scam. After being expelled, she had slammed the BJP-led Centre and termed her expulsion as “hanging by a Kangaroo court”. The TMC entrusted her again to hand over the seat to the party in the upcoming elections. She has been pitted against BJP candidate Amrita Roy.
