Nagaland Elections Results 2018: BJP-NDPP alliance wins 26 seats, leads on one; ruling NPF wins 27

Zeliang said the NPF continued to be a part of the northeast democratic alliance led by the BJP, and hoped the saffron party would form the government with it.

After hectic campaigning, the fruits of the same has been borne as BJP-IPFT alliance have reached the magic number mar of 30.

Earlier, Yechury said the CPM accepts the people's mandate in Tripura which is for the formation of BJP-IPTF alliance government.

Prime Minister complimented BJP Chief Amit Shah for a series of poll victory in the recent assembly elections in the country.

He proudly announced that BJP-led NDA will be in power in 21 states after these wins.

She maintained "it is not the BJP's victory but Left's defeat despitethe fact that they have performed sufficiently well against the wavecreated by publicity, money power and lies". In the last Assembly polls BJP had secured less than two per cent votes and the party seemed to have consigned to the role of also-rans in Tripuras electoral landscape.

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. The party and it ally had won all 20 seats in the state reserved for tribals, he said, claiming that it showed people's appreciation for the central government's work for the poor, backwards, dalits and tribals.

For the ruling NPF to give up quietly is not an option.

"Congress being the single largest party should be invited by the Governor to form its government".

Nagaland has chose to support the BJP in formation of a stable government in Nagaland.

In the last elections in 2013, the LF had secured 50 seats while remaining the 10 seats went to the Congress, which this time could not open its account.

According to Mr Yechury, the signatures of presiding officers and control agents from all other parties were present on the slip.

The BJP on its own comfortably managed an absolute majority with its candidates won 35 seats in the 60-member Assembly while its ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), a tribal based party, has wrested eight seats. The BJP got an informal invitation from NPF leader and Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang to join the new government.

Then again, the Congress is not giving up so easily and it is trying very hard to prevent the Manipur episode from being implicated in Meghalaya.

"The regional alliance will be meeting this evening and decide the next course of action", UDP leader Metbah Lyngdoh, who retained Mairang seat for the third consecutive term, told IANS. The RSSs ‘pracharak Sunil Deodhar had been appointed as ‘pravari, followed by the installation of young Biplab Deb as BJP State party chief.
