The party supremo is likely to visit Meghalaya on December 21 if everything remained as planned. This would be Banerjee's first visit to the state in the north-east on any official trip.

It was on September 30 when former Chief Minister of Goa Luizinho Falerio along with nine others had joined Trinamool Congress. On October 28 Trinamool Congress chairperson had visited Goa that is going for the Assembly polls in February 2022.

Trinamool Congress has decided to fight in all the 40 seats in the currently BJP-ruled states where the Congress and AAP are also trying to make their presence felt.

The political scenario in Goa had completely changed with Trinamool Congress coming up as a major political party and the party chairperson's assurance to the people in Goa that her party would fight against the divisive forces and work to break a new dawn for the state.

For the first time in the Goa's political history, she had visited the fishermen community that is the biggest community in the state.
