Kolkata: Union Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee on Wednesday congratulated Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee for winning the Bhowanipore Assembly seat and
described it as a "great victory".

Her victory by over 54,000 votes in the by-election
vindicates the initiatives she has taken as Chief Minister
after assumption of office on May 20 this year, Mukherjee
said.

"I congratulate her. It is a victory of the steps she
has taken as Chief Minister," Mukherjee told reporters
outside his south Kolkata residence.

Mamata Banerjee, a former Union minister, gave up her
Kolkata South Lok Sabha seat to be sworn in as Chief Minister,
marking a change of guard after 34 years of uninterrupted Left
Front rule in the state.
