  • BJP workers celebrate in Agartala as trends show the party leading in Tripura elections

But what will the BJP's critics say about Christian-majority Nagaland, where the party managed to win 12 of the 20 seats it contested, up from just one seat it won in 2013?

Veteran party leader and former chief minister V S Achuthanandan urged the party leadership to join hands with secular forces to fight the Sangh Parivar.

A function was organised by the BJP cadres at Bhour Camp in Gandhi Nagar Assembly segment in the presence of Ch. Vikram Randhawa to celebrate the landslide victory of the BJP in the North Eastern States i.e., Nagaland and Tripura-results of which were declared yesterday.

The differences are on key issues such as the bifurcation of Tripura and Meghalaya, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said in a series of tweets as the BJP was set to form government with its partners in the northeast states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland.

India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has expanded its dominance to the country's Northeast region by making impressive gains in the latest round of state elections.

"The BJP's victory in Tripura was the sabotage of democracy". The narrative the party weaved was that of utterly poor development and progress and highlighted the flaws of the Manik Sarkar government.

Senior CPM leader, M V Jayarajan said in a Facebook post that the BJP's victory in Tripura was the result of money power and the "unholy alliance with terror groups".

She did not disclose the identity of the patients, only saying that the hospital will "advise on the cause of action to be taken". It also calls to question doctors' lack of commitment to their patients to ensure they receive the care they need to get well.

In Nagaland too, the picture has become clear today.

An order signed on Sunday by EC Secretary Arvind Kumar said a tabulation error made by the Returning Officer on Saturday led to the declaration of N.R. Zeliang of the Naga People's Front (NPF) as the victor of the Tenning constituency instead of Namri Nchang of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP).

Though with 27 seats, the National People's Front (NPF) emerged as the single largest party, it failed to put together the simple majority mark of 31. "The BJP was able to consolidate all the anti-Left votes virtually appropriating the erstwhile main opposition party, the Congress".

They were accompanied by Chingwang Konyak, President NDPP; Visasolie Lhongou, President BJP Nagaland State Unit; V. Abu Metha, Secretary General NDPP; and Rusemtong Longkumer, General Secretary, NDPP. It took Prakash Karat's "toppling game against UPA-1" for AICC to finally allow Bengal Congress to side with Trinamool to deliver a deathblow to Left rule in Bengal. The results of the bypolls are disturbing for BJP because the party is in power in both these states with Congress as the most potent opposition.

To what extent is the Congress responsible for the BJP's rise in the Northeast?

The Governor also said that NPF president Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu informed him that he has written BJP national President Amit Shah that the NPF-BJP alliance is still going.
