Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, fresh from the victory of the alliance in the assembly elections, tonight met Union Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee to request Congress to join the new ministry to be formed in West Bengal.

Party insiders said Banerjee discussed ministry-making exercise and the likely participation of Congress with Mukherjee at his south Kolkata residence.

Banerjee, set to take over reins as chief minister, had said that she would like allies Congress and SUCI to join the Trinamool Congress-led ministry.
