The results of assembly elections in the northeastern states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland are out. BJP and its allies are getting huge success in Tripura and Nagaland but Meghalaya results are a blow for BJP. BJP has done very well in Tripura and Nagaland with allied parties. Tripura has regained power with the help of the local party IPFT with a brilliant performance. The alliance with the local party NDPP has also borne fruit in Nagaland, but the BJP’s bid to contest the elections alone in Meghalaya has fallen asleep, the election results suggest.
In Meghalaya, the BJP fielded its candidates on a total of 48 out of 60 seats. Out of which BJP is leading in 2 seats. Congress and TMC are also leading on a total of 9 seats. Local party NPP is ahead in 27 seats. It is ahead in 15 other seats. With at least 31 seats required for a majority, Meghalaya’s election results are expected to be hung. NPP will remain as the largest party while the rest of the parties were in conflict.
Meghalaya election results have proved that Konrad Sangam has taken over the political legacy of PA Sangam. Experts believe that there should have been a strong local face for the post of Chief Minister in the elections. It turned out that BJP did not have any strong local candidate. Last term, BJP got 2 seats but succeeded in getting power by coming to an agreement with local parties.
This time the overconfident Rachi has to win the elections single-handedly without any agreement with any local paper and ultimately has to be deprived of power in Meghalaya. Even in the exit poll, it was reported that no single party would get a clear majority in Meghalaya. In the Northeast, Nagaland and Tripura have come under the sway of the BJP. The dire situation for the Congress is that none of the three states have secured satisfactory seats. In Nagaland there are also loopholes to open an account.
