West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee congratulated party workers on the occassion of 21st foundation day of the Trinamool Congress.

It is learnt that the TMC party was founded on January 1, 1998.

Mamata Banerjee took to his Twitter account and wrote, "Today @AITCofficial turns 21. The journey which began on January 1, 1998 has been full of struggles, but we have been steadfast in our resolve to fight for the people #Trinamool21." 

Expressing her gratitude to the supporters, she wrote: "We are thankful to Maa-Mati-Manush for their constant support. And the workers who work hard 365 days a year for the people. A big salute to you."

The TMC leadership had last week issued instructions to conduct various programmes across the state on Tuesday to mark the occasion.

The district leaders have arranged for party flag-hoisting programmes and street corner meetings to discuss and highlight achievements of the party in the last six-and-a-half years.

The All India Trinamool Congress (abbreviated AITC, TMC or Trinamool Congress) is based in West Bengal and is led by its founder Mamata Banerjee.

Prior to the 2009 general election it was the sixth largest party in the Lok Sabha with 19 seats; following the 2014 general election, it is currently the fourth largest party in the Lok Sabha with 34 seats.
