Kiren Rijiju

Extending his best wishes to people of Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya, Mr Surjewala said, "We sincerely pray & hope that peace, progress, cohabitation & development will be the agendas pursued by new governments". The party drew a blank in the 2013 assembly elections but won 35 seats this time, while its ally Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFP) won eight.

The communist movement in the country could not be written off because of an electoral setback. "/ would review the results and try to find out the factors, which led to the debacle for the CPI-M".

Sarma also dismissed the suggestion that the minorities, particularly the Christians in the northeast, were against the BJP, saying the community "wholeheartedly" supported the party. He will address many rallies and corner meetings in the coastal and Mysore region of the southern state in this phase of the "Janaashirvad Yatra", a party official said.

Union minister Giriraj Singh also lambasted the Congress president, and was reported in DNA as saying, "A leader does not leave his people at such times". We are already in touch with other political parties. He, in coordination with BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and the party's leader from adjacent Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma, was overseeing every move in the state and drew up a meticulous plan.

According to EC sources, the BJP secured 11 seats while its alliance partner the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) got 16 seats.

"The Congress party respects the mandate of the people of Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya", Gandhi said on Twitter two days after results of assembly elections were declared.

"I thank all the officials and security personnel who helped to conduct the elections peacefully", Sarkar told the media at the Raj Bhavan after submitting his formal resignation letter.

With an eye on winning Left-ruled Tripura, Sunil Deodhar, who did a good job in Varanasi during Modi's Lok Sabha campaign, was sent to the state in 2014 itself.

Traditional jackets and stoles from northeastern states were given to all Bharatiya Janata Party leaders to celebrate the party's impressive show in the North east.

Modi, addressing a youth convention in poll-bound Karnataka's Tumkur district, said the results in Tripura, where the BJP won 43 of the 59 seats, gave him "immense joy".

Meanwhile, the governor asked the outgoing chief minister to continue till a new government takes oath of office.

Nagaland: Neiphiu Rio, BJP & allies meet Governor, stake claim to form next govt.

. Leaders in Nagaland know that to assuage concerns and settle questions over the Naga "solution", it needs to have the party in power at the Centre on board, which in this case happens to be the BJP.

The Prime Minister also paid tribute to the BJP workers, who lost their lives a year ago, by observing silence for a minute at the event. This was just weeks before the election on February 27.
