Nagaland: Will bring transparency in governance, says Rio

Nagaland Election Results 2018 LIVE UPDATES: NPF goes ahead of NDPP, leads in 29 seats

In Meghalaya, the Assembly election results were likely to throw up a hung verdict, while in Nagaland, it was a close close contest between the ruling Naga People's Front and the BJP-Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party combine.

Out of the country for the weekend to celebrate Holi with his 93-year-old grandmother, Congress president Rahul Gandhi launched a stinging attack against the BJP soon after his return.

The BJP which now in the Nagaland government with NPF has made a decision to walk out of the alliance and join hands with Neiphiu Rio's newly launched party NDPP. "My honest thanks to each and every Congress worker who toiled for the party", he posted on Twitter.

The Congress emerged as the single-largest party in the state winning 21 seats, but failed to cobble up a coalition with other regional outfits.

"People responded favourably to our call call "Chalo Paltai" (let's change)", he said. However Congress have termed this election result as aberration.

Going by how the BJP managed to sweep the CPI (M) away from its bastion in Tripura, the state it had ruled without a break since 1993, it is only natural to look at the saffron party's election-winning strategy.

Over 67 percent of BJP MPs who were elected to Lok Sabha in 2014 hail from the states where the party extended its rule in the next three years.

"Post #Tripura results there is excitement in media about the results' implications for Karnataka. So let us not lose perspective: there is no Modi wave here (sic)", Siddaramaiah tweeted on Sunday. It all started previous year as BJP wrested power from Congress bastions - Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh.

A verity of factors, not limited to anti-incumbency, led the BJP claiming victory in Tripura and could see the party form governments in Meghalaya and Nagaland, post-election the way it did in Manipur past year.

For the BJP, forming government in Nagaland will mean consolidating its position further in the north east. Hope Modiji had cared to learn from Rajivji who put Nation First and brought peace to the region by Assam and Mizo accords, he said.

This came moments after the lone Independent candidate Tongpang Ozukum declared his letter of support to the BJP-NDPP which gave the NDPP-BJP alliance the magic number boost.

Poverty and lack of developmental work in the northeastern region became the focal point for RSS's work and the Modi government. Tripura is a majority Hindu state, but a third of its population consists of indigenous tribes.

The BJP leadership did not make any comment on the IPFT's demand.

The J&K Government felicitated the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for BJP's impressive performance in three north-eastern states.

In Meghalaya, the BJP played a pivotal role in stitching up a mega alliance and secure the support of 34 legislators to form the next government. The Government formation is to take place in Nagaland on March 7, Wednesday. "Is this the answer to Meghalaya's aspirations and a stable Government?"
