New Delhi, Nov 23 (UNI) Two Congress leaders - Ashok Tanwar and Kirti Azad, and a former MP from Janata Dal (United) Pavan Varma on Tuesday joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) here, in the presence of its party supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Banerjee welcomed all of them to the TMC after they have joined the party separately.

After joining TMC, cricketer-turned-politician Azad said the country needs such a personality who can show the right and new direction and Banerjee has this leadership ability.

He further said the way Banerjee has understood the problems of the common people at the ground level, it shows her sense of service to the country.
