Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, all set to take over the reins of power in West Bengal, on Friday requested party allies Congress and Left opposition Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI), to join her government.


"I request Congress and SUCI to join our government," Banerjee told a group of journalists at her Kalighat residence.

While Congress contested 65 seats and SUCI 19, the former so far secured 27 and were leading in 14 seats. SUCI has so far won one seat.

In New Delhi, Congress leader and Union Finance Minister however, said the party had not taken any decision in power sharing in West Bengal.

Meanwhile, SUCI said that people had given a clear mandate against the "atrocities of CPI(M) in last 35 years".
