Nagaland election 2018 result live

"We can no longer afford to keep the Congress out of the broader unity of Left and democratic forces", a senior CPI (M) leader of Tripura, who also did not wish to be named, said.

People's Party president Conrad Sangma, however, said the party will form the next government in Meghalaya as the people were in favour of change."We are hopeful that we will be able to form the government".

March 03 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the northeast has come forward to lead India on the path of development.

Sarkar, however, will continue to be the caretaker Chief Minister until the new government sworn in.

Party spokesperson and research cell in-charge Rajeev Gowda, however, said the Northeast results were an "aberration" and the national trend was against the BJP.

Mr Modi said the new Tripura government will be driven by the dreams of the youth and women belonging to the BJP.

While the Left has preserved a significant part of its vote share in Tripura (42.7 per cent against the BJP's 43 per cent), the Congress has drawn a blank in Nagaland and Tripura.

In Meghalaya, where it had no seat, the BJP not only opened its account but might muster a coalition to keep the Congress out of power through political manoeuvring, like it did in Manipur and Goa. However, the opposition parties criticised him for failing to improve the law and order in the state and doing very little on the development front.

Both Congress and Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) failed to win a single seat in Tripura. Leading the fight against Yechury was the Kerala unit of the CPI-M, fully under Vijayan's control.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party has ended the 25-year uninterrupted rule of India's communists Tripura state. "The murder politics of CPI (M) and intolerance were the main reasons for their defeat", he added.

The BJP also appointed Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari and Jual Oram as observers in Tripura, where it scored a stunning victory.

A draft political resolution, which is going to be taken up by the party Congress in April, has ruled out any understanding or alliance with the Congress party.

Neiphiu Rio, who is set to take over again as the next Chief Minister of Nagaland, on Sunday said that his priority would be to bring transparency in governance in the "troubled" state.

He also said that the party's victory in Tripura was not an ordinary victory but a win for democracy over brute force and intimidation.
