TMC's Sunil Singh has won the Naopara assembly seat in West Bengal with 1,11,729 votes. 

 Singh said, “It is a great win and it shows people’s faith in TMC. I will now work for the people. There was a rumour that former TMC leader and now a BJP leader Mukul Roy would be a factor in Noapara seat but he could not make a difference in reality.”
