In the 2006, 2001 and 1996 state assembly elections, Binoy Dutta of CPI(M) won the Arambag assembly seat defeating Bibhabindu Nandi of Trinamool Congress in 2006,[15] Sk. Hasan Imam of Trinamool Congress in 2001,[14] and Abdus Sukkur of Congress in 1996.[13] Contests in most years were multi cornered but only winners and runners are being mentioned. Benode Das of CPI(M) defeated Jalim Singha Roy of Congress in 1991[12] and Abdul Mannan of Congress in 1987.[11] Abdul Mannan of Congress defeated independent candidate Ranjit Chakraborty in 1982.[10] Ajoy Kumar Dey of Janata Party defeated Madan Kumar Saha of CPI(M) in 1977.[9][26]

1951-1972

Prafulla Chandra Sen won the Arambag seat in 1972,[8] 1971[7] and 1969.[6] In a historic contest in 1967[5] Prafulla Chandra Sen, then the Congress Chief Minister, lost the Arambagh seat to Ajay Kumar Mukherjee of Bangla Congress, who became the new Chief Minister, in the first United Front government in the state. Main factor of Sen's defeat was student agitation there. Students under the leadership of Narayan Ch ghosh had organised farmers, poor people & middle class against Prafulla Chandra Sen. In 1962[4] Arambagh had two seats. Prafulla Chandra Sen of Congress won the Arambagh East seat and Radha Krishna Pal of Congress won the Arambagh West seat. In 1957[3] Radha Krishna Pal of Congress won the Arambagh seat. In independent India’s first general election in 1951[2] Arambagh had twin seats. These were won by Madan Mohan Saha of CPI and Radha Krishna Pal, Independent.
