The party has also achieved the pan India image through it's dedicated efforts to reach out to all sections of people, said Khandu.

The Chief Minister said when it comes to Northeast, the Prime Minister has always accorded great importance to its development.

The BJP has 35 MLAs and the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) has eight. The BJP has been riding a wave of rising Hindu nationalism in the country. The fact that this has been allowed to be translated in the decline of the number of seats from 49 in 2013 to 16 points to the resounding success in the Party's main objective: bringing the vote share of the feudal, neo-liberal bourgeoisie force that is the Congress down from 36.53% in the previous polls to below 2%. BJP-allied NPP leader Conrad Sangma will form the new government in Meghalaya after he cobbled together a coalition to claim majority support in the legislature.

The election results for Tripura on Saturday showed the BJP and its alliance partners had won comfortably, ending the 25-year reign of the communist government.

However, it forged an alliance with the BJP on the basis of a common minimum agenda and the saffron party made it clear that it was opposed to the demand for a separate state.

"A new political landscape led by BJP is firmly established in the region now".

Kelly: I have 'nothing to even consider resigning over'
Scaramucci also referred to Kelly as "General Jackass". "I never saw him mad or abusive in anyway", Kelly told reporters Friday. He said that he spoke to Porter after the second allegation and insisted that at this point, Porter had "already resigned".

He hoped that a new Government will be installed in the State at the earliest.

While the BJP wrested the Left bastion of Tripura and received an invitation to be a part of the government in Nagaland, Meghalaya elected a hung Assembly.

The Congress's euphoria over recent by-poll victories may have been punctured after the party's dismal performance in the Northeast, but its leaders believe the results will have no bearing on Karnataka, which they are confident of holding on to.

"Mr. Zeliang and the other MLAs said the BJP would support them". The NDPP and the BJP won 18 and 12 seats respectively while the lone JD (U) MLA G Kaito Aye and Independent legislator Tongpang Ozukum were backing the alliance, NDPP Secretary General Abu Metha said.

The Congress emerged as the single largest party with 21 seats in Meghalaya but didn't get enough numbers to form the government, while it drew blank in Nagaland and Tripura.

"Today we are seeing a true pan-India rise of the BJP". It took Prakash Karat's "toppling game against UPA-1" for AICC to finally allow Bengal Congress to side with Trinamool to deliver a deathblow to Left rule in Bengal. "This has boosted our confidence even more for 2019", BJP president Amit Shah said. These two constituencies are going to poll in a week time and the favorable results of these by-elections will have serious psychological value for opposition parties in India, particularly after BJP's by-poll debacles in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
