Mahua Moitra, one of the influentials from West Bengal's All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) is contesting the Lok Sabha polls 2024 once again from Krishnanagar constituency. As of 1 pm, she is leading by 60,527 votes.

Krishnanagar has been TMC's battleground in West Bengal where the party won all of the seven Assembly segments in the 2021 elections. Moitra campaigned rigorously during the poll rallies this year and targets to bolster a victory over BJP’s Amrita Roy.

Expelled from Lok Sabha in December 2023 after an ethics panel proposed action against Moitra for her involvement in a cash-for-query case— the TMC fireband defeated BJP’s Kalyan Chaubey by 63,208 votes, in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. She bagged 45 per cent of the valid votes cast in the constituency that covers West Bangal's Nadia district.

Moitra has declared her assets to ECI for 2024 General Elections which stand at over 3 crore.

In April this year, lawyer Jai Anant Dehadrai withdrew from the Delhi High Court his defamation lawsuit against Moitra as a 'peace offering. Dehadrai had last year accused Moitra of taking bribes from businessman and Hiranandani Group CEO Darshan Hiranandani to ask questions in Parliament, which led to her expulsion from the Lok Sabha on December 8.
