Mamata Banerjee

Mamata Banerjee is the current Chief Minister of West Bengal and the chairperson of the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC). Her party won the Legislative Assembly elections in Bengal in 2011 after 34 years of rule by the Communist Party of India (Marxist). Banerjee began her political career in the 1970s as part of the Congress and later split away from it, forming the TMC. She gained popularity in the state by her determined opposition to the land acquisition policies of the CPI(M) for industrialisation. Before becoming the Chief Minister of the state, she held the position of railway minister for two terms. Popularly known as 'didi' in Bengal, she was listed by the Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
