BJP To Celebrate Historic Tripura Win As Vijay Diwas Today

"A senior party member, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the result of the Tripura Assembly election was likely to change equations within the party". It also looked like it could win a majority with support from other groups in Meghalaya and Nagaland states.

"So they have land, but it stopped there", Mr Sarkar said. "We thank the people of Tripura for giving us the opportunity to serve them for the past 25 years".

Mr. Raja's statement is significant given that the CPI (M) is divided on this very question. The politics of violence has been defeated by the power of democracy in Tripura. It was ousted from power from its main bastion, West Bengal state, in 2011 by a regional group that ended 34 years of its continuous rule there. It already has governments in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. We must understand the BJP is coming to power.

"Tripura voters have given their mandate for a BJP-IPTF government in the state". The NDPP and the BJP also won 29 seats but have also got the support of JD (U) and an independent.

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. There is a lesson to be learned from this for other political parties, especially the BJP.

"It is an endorsement of the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the people of the Northeast", he told in a press conference.

For a Hindu nationalist party like the BJP to win over these electorates was "surprising", said Pradip Kumar Datta, a professor of political theory at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University.

"The victory of BJP is not an ordinary electoral victory". While praising BJP Chief he also took a jibe at the Congress party.

"The historic victory in Tripura is as much an ideological one. That's why we need a broader anti-BJP front", said CPI leader D Raja. Today peace and non-violence has prevailed over fear. "The party is confident of formation of the government with its allies", the statement said. "What my sisters and brothers of Tripura have done is extraordinary. I have given them 48 hours time to submit the signatures of the elected members supporting them".

"So let us not lose perspective: there is no Modi wave here", he tweeted.

A day after the Meghalaya and Nagaland assembly election results were out, throwing up hung assemblies, the states are moving towards new coalition governments with the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) as part of both. The elections in Tripura were held on February 18.
