Nagaland, Tripura, Meghalaya Assembly Elections: Counting Begins

"We will provide Tripura the good government that the state deserves", he said.

This meant that the BJP would contest a lion share of 50 seats and leave nine seats for its new ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT). Most of their MLAs had earlier defected to the Trinamool Congress and ahead of the elections had joined the BJP.

The Left leader said the party would study and analyse the poll results and then decide its next set of actions. They voted overwhelmingly for the BJP to replace what Modi termed was the "wrong Manik" with "HIRA" which, he said, stood for "Highway, I-ways, Roadways and Airways".

CPI (M): BJP has, apart from other factors, utilised massive deployment of money & other resources to influence the elections. In Nagaland too, elections were held for only 59 seats as NDPP leaders Neiphiu Rio was declared elected unopposed.

The NPF headed by Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang has already passed a resolution, expressing its desire to continue its alliance with the BJP. The BJP is poised to form the government with a two-thirds majority in Tripura, will be a part of the government in Nagaland and may manage to cobble together a coalition in Meghalaya.

The Congress, wiped out in Tripura and Nagaland, has not given up hope of forming a government in Meghalaya, but is wary of a Manipur-like situation where it emerged as the single largest party in the Assembly elections past year but lost seven MLAs to the BJP that cobbled up an alliance government.

Interestingly, the BJP has two ministers in the NPF government but had stitched a pre-poll alliance with the National Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) that won 16 seats. Indications are that the saffron flag will fly not just in Tripura and Nagaland, but also in Meghalaya. The Communist Party of India (Marxist), or CPI (M), had won eight seats and was leading another eight races, according to the Election Commission.

The results so far show that the NPF, JD (U) and NPP have secured 29 seats, while the NDPP and its poll partner BJP has won 28 seats.

The PM said that BJP activists had been attacked and many had to sacrifice their lives, in face of attacks by ideological rivals in states like Tripura, West Bengal Kerala and Karnataka.

Thus, in Tripura, for the first time in the country, two cadre-based parties, the CPI (M) on the Left and the BJP-RSS on the Right, came into direct clash and the latter won overwhelmingly.

Meanwhile, Tongpang Ozukum, an independent candidate also submitted his letter of support to the BJP in Nagaland.

Kolkata: Accusing the Congress of total negligence in contesting the Tripura Assembly elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said she had approached Congress President Rahul Gandhi for alliance but was not listened to.
