Union Minsiter for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi on Wednesday congratulated Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee for her party's victory in the Kolkata Municipal Corporation elections.

"I congratulate my colleague and Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee for her party's victory in the Kolkata Municipal Corporation election', Ravi told reporters here.

Lashing at CPI-M, Ravi alleged that the statement of Kerala Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan, accusing Congress policies as the cause for the growth of 'Muslim and Christian communalism', was a political ploy to appease majority community and RSS.

The minister said he was not leading any group in Congress and wanted to be known as a 'Congressman and not as groupman'.
