"BJP will march towards Karnataka with this victory", says Amit Shah

Assembly election in Meghalaya

He said the BJP's win in Tripura was no ordinary victory and it was a journey from "shoonya to shikhara" (zero to peak).

Nonetheless, the Congress still fielded candidates in 59 of the 60 seats, the highest for the party since 1977. The results certainly show that selecting these issues has worked for BJP. As far as the Left parties are concerned, it has been proved that the Left is not right for any part of the country. "The number was earlier 19 but has increased to 21", said Singh.

Here is the final party position in the results declared on Saturday for assembly polls in Tripura and Meghalaya. With the possibility of relatively fewer seats in the Hindi belt states during the Lok Sabha elections in 2019, BJP will rely on its northeastern surge to compensate for the probable loss of seats in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

"For five generations, the victory that the BJP workers were probably looking for, we have got today". He said, "Victory after victory is a positive sign".

Shah said the central government has also worked to bring peace in the northeast and the verdict was a stamp on those efforts.

He said the National Democratic Alliance partners have got "big success" in the state.

Also, Mr Modi's "Act East" policy also made sure that the BJP was seen as a political alternative to reckon with, in the region.

He assured that despite gaining a majority in Tripura, BJP will also involve members from allied parties in the cabinet. "I feel that in Tripura BJP is going to do very well In Nagaland too, our alliance is doing very well and Congress is trailing in Meghalaya".

Calling BJP's victory in Tripura a historic one, Singh said that people from all religions and sections of society had voted for the party and had taught a lesson to those practising divisive politics. However, NPF leader and Chief Minister TR Zeliang has invited the BJP to form the government with the party.

As the party debates the reason for the debacle, the tussle between general secretary Sitaram Yechury backed by the Bengal unit and his predecessor Prakash Karat helped by Kerala, particularly on the question of aligning with the Congress, will only accentuate ahead of the conclave. The only way to win over the people in these two states is to play the pluralist India card, where these two Christian-majority states can remain safe and distinct.

After the Assembly elections past year threw hung verdicts in Manipur and Goa, the BJP formed governments there with the help of smaller parties and independent candidates.
