The ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal turned 21 on Tuesday and used the occasion to project party chief and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as a possible prime ministerial candidate of any grand opposition alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
The party also vowed to work to ensure a secular and progressive India under the leadership of 63-year-old Ms Banerjee.
Describing 2019 as the "year of change", senior TMC lawmaker Abhishek Banerjee said the party is "standing at a historic juncture where it wants to play a vital role in New Delhi in favour of the working class".
