Medinipur: After maintaining its hold over the Medinipur seat of West Bengal for almost half the day, the BJP slipped down the ranks in a surprising turn of events. As of 2 pm, Trinamool's June Malia presented a shocker as she led against Agnimitra Paul of the saffron party by a margin of nearly 50,000 votes.

Out of 42 in West Bengal, Medinipur is a key parliamentary constituency due to the absence of a stronghold, with parties frequently changing through each elections, and it witnessed polls on May 25 during the 6th phase of the Lok Sabha Elections.

This constituency is a general category constituency and has a literacy rate of 70.12 percent. It has seven assembly segments spanning two districts: Purba Medinipur, which includes Egra constituency; and Paschim Medinipur, which includes Dantan, Keshiary, Kharagpur Sadar, Narayangarh, Kharagpur, and Medinipur assembly constituencies.

June Malia from the Trinamool Congress, Agnimitra Paul from the BJP, and Biplab Kumar from the CPI(M) are the three key candidates from the Tamluk constituency.

While the BJP is eyeing a second consecutive win in Medinipur, the TMC is hoping for an overthrow this time.

As per the last 2021 assembly elections, the BJP secured the Kharagpur Sadar assembly constituency, whereas the Trinamool Congress secured the rest six constituencies. As per the 2011 census, the number of rural and urban voters in this parliamentary seat is approximately 12,72,680 and 3,99,699, which is around 76.1 percent and 23.9 percent, respectively.
