Tripura poll win reflects people's mood for 2019: BJP

Exit polls for the three northeastern states

Debbarma further said the BJP and IPFT had fought the elections in alliance with the sole aim of defeating the CPI-M and it was achieved. As BJP won with huge margin in Tripura, so it is the party's responsibility to work with an eye to fulfilling the basic requirements of people. It is in speculation that BJP-NDPP combine may form a government with the help of smaller parties like NPP, JD (U) and an independent. His comment comes amid speculation that former Congress and Trinamul leaders, who joined BJP a year ago, would be given ministerial berths. The term of the current Nagaland assembly ends on March 13.

Tripura BJP party chief Biplab Kumar Deb had earlier said he was ready to take on the mantle of chief minister, but a decision on it would be taken by the party's highest decision making body, the Parliamentary Board.

Deb, a gym instructor-turned-politician, thanked the people of Tripura for their overwhelming support and credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah with the party's showing. "The CM will also address a press conference at the state BJP office", the BJP leader said. "However, with the support of people and the employees, I am sure everybody will learn on the job and do a great job in due course", he said.

The newly elected MLAs of Meghalaya will take oath during a special one-day assembly session on Wednesday, assembly commissioner and secretary Andrew Simons said in Shillong today.

"Election is a separate issue".

We are hopeful that the Central government will form a high-level monitoring committee to look into our demand for a separate state for the tribals.

In the meantime, electoral partner of BJP, IPFT last night had legislature party meeting and sought the berth of deputy chief minister for them.

Clarifying the meaning of "respectable" positions, IPFT chief Debbarma stated it meant proportionate representation of IPFT MLAs in the Cabinet and allocation of major departments to them.
