BJP's probable Tripura CM candidate meets Manik Sarkar

BJP's probable Tripura CM candidate meets Manik Sarkar

Extending his best wishes to people of Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya, Mr Surjewala said, "We sincerely pray & hope that peace, progress, cohabitation & development will be the agendas pursued by new governments".

Sangma met the governor on Sunday evening to stake claim to form a coalition government in Meghalaya. Since 2014 Lok Sabha results #BJP has lost Assembly segments in over 50 Lok Sabha Seats & has won only about 2 LS seats.

Gowda said the country was seeing a "revival and resurgence" of the Congress starting with Gujarat and the bypolls in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, and "the cutting to size of the BJP due to its corruption and non-performance".

After the saffron party registered victory in Tripura and overwhelming response in Nagaland and Meghalaya, the Bharatiya Janata Party Parliamentary Board has appointed central observers for the three North-eastern States.

The UDP and HSPDP, which stitched a pre-poll alliance, won only six and two seats respectively, while the newly floated People's Democratic Front won four. mThe BJP won two seats and the NCP and KHNAM one seats each, besides three independents.

"I have not been selected as Chief Ministerial candidate of BJP yet".

The BJP and its new partner Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) will form the government in the state with the help of two candidates who offered their support soon after the assembly results were announced.

Despite the BJP's success in Tripura, "it will not be possible at all to get through in West Bengal and Odisha".

Post results, Nagaland chief minister TR Zeliang has said that the NPF is open to an alliance with the BJP if it proposes to do so but that the party will not form any relation with Rio's baby- the NDPP.

The Congress failed to score a single seat in Tripura and Nagaland. The battle and the focus now shifts to this state as assembly elections are just a couple of months away.

Now, BJP-led NDA assumed power in seven out of eight northeastern states.

From being an insignificant player in the Northeast's politics, the BJP has come a long way since its emphatic win in the national parliamentary polls almost four years ago. The NPP came second with 19 seats in its kitty.
