BJP leads in Tripura, Congress races ahead in Meghalaya

Tally till 12 pm: In Tripura, BJP surged ahead of the Left Front Government and is leading in 41 seats. BJP has bagged 43 seats out of 60 seats in Tripura while Left has managed to win mere 16 seats. Polling in one seat was countermanded due to the death of CPI-M candidate.

With results announced for all 59 seats in Tripura's state legislature, the BJP had won a big majority to form a government on its own in the state, replacing the Communist Party of India (Marxist), or CPI (M). "I feel that in Tripura BJP is going to do very well In Nagaland too, our alliance is doing very well and Congress is trailing in Meghalaya".

Mumbai: The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) exemplary performance in Tripura reflects the mood of the people for the 2019 general elections, Ashish Shelar, the party's city unit chief, said on Saturday.

"People in Karnataka are fed up with rampant corruption...the Congress and CPI (M) are in a race to lose their relevance and at present CPI (M) is leading", he said. Also, crucial to the election victory was the hard work put in by the BJP, the RSS and ground-level workers who came from all corners to the state in the past eight months and more. It is no longer enough for a CM to gain votes by being the "poorest" person to hold the position, as Manik Sarkar did.

The verdict of the people of Tripura will lead to the formation of a BJP-IPFT alliance government in the state. Only 18 Congress candidates contested Nagaland elections and the party failed to open its account. The 49-year-old Assam's minister for education, health and finance switched over to the BJP from Congress in August 2015.

Then BJPs stalwarts, Ram Madhav, Himanta Biswa Sarma and a large number of partys central leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi toured the State extensively.

This was after Meghalaya once again delivered a fractured mandate with no party obtaining an absolute majority. He alleged that the BJP has used both "money and muscle power in Tripura".

While Neiphiu Rio-led NDPP-BJP alliance is within sniffing distance of victory now, the situation has taken an amusing turn as incumbent chief minister and NPF leader TR Zeliang has hinted at a continuance of his party's alliance with BJP. "It is good for the Northeast, good for India", he said. But their numbers can not be large considering that BJP's vote share in the last three elections hovered around one per cent while the Congress voting percentage was consistently above 30 per cent.

In West Bengal and Tripura, the Left parties kept winning election after election thanks to their famed cadres, their complete mastery over the election system, co-option of local elites, state institutions and civil society alike.
