As BJP celebrates Tripura victory, cracks appear in alliance with IPFT

Nagaland Assembly elections NDPP-BJP set to take charge with support from JDU independent

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who had campaigned in Tripura, said, "The party is achieving historical success in Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya under the able leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and I want to congratulate all party workers, PM Modi and party president Amit Shah". An official announcement is expected tomorrow after a meeting of the BJP's newly elected legislators, which union ministers Nitin Gadkari and Jual Oram will oversee as central observer.

Debbarma also demanded that the chief minister should be from among the indigenous MLAs and said it was the tradition of the northeast that a chief minister is selected from the indigenous community. "I have already been given a bigger responsibility, the party's state presidentship, which I have been fulfilling to the best of my ability", he said.

The BJP and its ally on Saturday scripted history by ending the 25-year reign of the Left Front led by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) with a two-thirds majority in the Tripura legislative assembly elections. "People responded favourably to our call "Chalo Paltai" (Let's Change)", he said.




Mounting pressure on its electoral ally BJP, the Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT) today said that it would support the new government from outside if it was not given respectable positions in the ministry.

Reacting to query, BJP candidate Biplab Kumar Ghosh, who is elected from Matabari Constituency with 23069 votes said, the previous government headed by CPI-M was unable to fulfill peoples' requirements in Tripura.

The governor advised Sarkar, who was chief minister since 1998, to continue until the new chief minister takes oath. He is a politburo member of CPI-M and has been ruling the state for the fourth consecutive time. Elections were held in 59 seats in all three states due to different reasons despite them having 60-member assemblies.
