Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, is likely to travel to Meghalaya before Christmas in an effort to strengthen the Trinamool Congress's position in the Northeastern state as it prepares for the forthcoming Assembly election in 2023.

Banerjee, the chief minister of Bengal, will visit Meghalaya between December 12 to December 14, according to reports.

Meghalaya has always had a reserved approach to elections. For many years, candidates have hosted local gatherings throughout the state, connecting with residents of different colonies with the sporadic huge gathering.

Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, lamented the Mukroh violence at a contentious Assam-Meghalaya border area that had claimed six lives the day before and begged for calm there on Wednesday.

Abhishek Banerjee, the general secretary of the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC), also paid a two-day visit to Meghalaya from November 17 to 18.

After 12 of the state's 17 Congress MLAs defected to the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC in November of last year, the TMC surpassed the Congress as the major opposition force in the Meghalaya Assembly.


The TMC attempted to broaden its support base in Goa, Haryana, Tripura, and Meghalaya after winning the West Bengal assembly elections by a landslide in 2021. The party has previously run in Tripura civic elections and Goa assembly elections.
