Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was on Friday re-elected as the chairperson of the All India Trinmool Congress (TMC) for six years.

Trinmool Congress vice-president Mukul Roy made the announcement after the party’s organisational polls in the presence of Banerjee at the Netaji Indoor Stadium here.

After her re-election, Banerjee said, “It would have been better if the responsibility was given to some other person. I am busy with other works.”

“I prefer to be a worker because the workers are the party’s wealth, not the leaders. TMC works for the people,” she said.
