The Left Front has fielded CPI(M)'s youth leader Pratikur Rahman from the seat.

Das, who has an RSS background, unsuccessfully contested on a BJP ticket from the seat in the 2014 polls.

The party had earlier announced candidates for 41 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state, except Diamond Harbour, considered a TMC bastion.
