BJP celebrates party's victory in Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya

BJP celebrates party's victory in Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya

The People's Democratic Front (PDF) bagged four seats, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) and three Independents got one seat each.

Despite being the largest party in recently concluded elections, Congress could not ally other regional parties to form its government.

Rio had met the governor along with NDPP president Chingwang Konyak, BJP state president Visasolie Lhoungu, the JD (U) MLA and the Independent legislator, he said.

Rijiju said that as the BJP had electoral understanding with the NDPP, it has to go with the party.

"If they say that the NPP is not with the BJP then why don't they leave the NDA, then only people will believe them", AICC media-coordinator Bobeeta Sharma said. "We can't let the BJP derive benefits out of division among Left secular and democratic forces", the central committee member said. Rio claimed he had the support of 32 MLAs in the 60-member Assembly. The governor advised Sarkar to continue until the new chief minister takes oath.

A meme of a coffin with "Tripura" written on it is being carried by Vijayan, state party Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and former Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan.

"It is now clear that the people of Karnataka will also reject the Congress for its corruption, collapse of law and order and divisive politics being unleashed by Siddaramaiah", he said in a release. West Bengal Congress president Adhir Chowdhury, who has been a big supporter of the Left-Congress alliance, said the CPI (M) has to behave pragmatically and needs to relook at its policies on the Congress before it is "too late".

"It is the writing on the wall (for the congress)", he told PTI. "Is it happening in Rajasthan, where we got two Parliament seats and one Assembly seat; is it happening in Gujarat, where we were about to win but for the gimmicks played by them, misusing the GST power with them?" "I can not thank them enough", Mr. Sarkar said after meeting the governor.

Mr Sarkar, reputed as India's poorest chief minister, was single-handedly leading his party's campaign that at times appeared to pale in front of the BJP's aggressive campaign led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and others.
