Momen greets Mamata

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has congratulated West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her party Trinamool Congress for a resounding victory in the by-elections.

In a message to Mamata Banerjee on Monday, Momen expressed the hope that Bangladesh's relations with West Bengal would be closer and complementary in days to come.

He said the landslide victory in Bhabanipur constituency for the third consecutive term is reflective of the people of  West Bengal's continued confidence and deep faith in the leadership of Mamata Banerjee.

Foreign Minister Momen wished the people of West Bengal all prosperity under the worthy leadership of Mamata Banerjee. He also wished the Chief Minister of West Bengal good health and continued success, and also greeted her ahead of Durga Puja.

Mamata Banerjee won the Bhabanipur Assembly by-polls on Sunday by a record margin of 58,832 votes against Priyanka Tibrewal of BJP. This victory makes her a member of the West Bengal Legislative Assembly and will allow her to continue as chief minister of West Bengal.

She was elected chief minister by the Trinamool Congress legislature party in May 2021.
