BJP begins the process to form government in Tripura

BJP begins the process to form government in Tripura

However this did not belittle the setbacks suffered by the Left, he said.

A day after the party and its ally BJP swept the Assembly polls, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) on Sunday demanded a respectable representation of its MLAs in the new state government.

Even in Meghalaya it didn't get enough numbers to form government. "During the celebration, the party will distribute leaflets highlighting the welfare programmes taken up by the Modi government and also programmes being implemented", the chief minister said. Some parts of the region are also susceptible to communal and ethnic tensions.

Prior to that, Deodhar was made incharge of Dahod district in Gujarat for the 2012 Assembly polls and managed to up the tally of the party from the Adivasi-dominated region from one seat to three.

Senior party leader and state Minister A K Balan alleged that the saffron party had "misused" money and power at the Centre for their victory in the north eastern state, which had been considered as the fortress of the Left party.

In Nagaland too, the picture has become clear today.

Congress leader Kamal Nath told reporters that his party is hopeful of forming the government in Meghalaya with support from other parties.

Megahlay had given a fractured verdict with ruling Congress as single largest party wit 21 seats, nine short of simple majority. The Left Front's tally has now been reduced to 16 as opposed to 50 seats that it won in the last assembly polls. Together with NPP, NPF could take up its number to 29. And in Karnataka, despite being on a solid wicket, anything less than an outright win will surely prompt the JDS to strike an alliance with the BJP (despite assurances to the contrary by Deve Gowda) and displace Congress. And with the support of the lone independent candidate as well as the JD (U), the coalition crossed the magic number mark now standing at 32 seats.

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

. It has 122 members in the Assembly and Mr.Siddaramaiah is the Chief Minister.

Deb met the outgoing Chief Minister Manik Sarkar at the latter's official residence and sought his blessings. Governor Tathagata Roy walked up to his vehicle to see him off in a good will gesture.

National General Secretary PK Kunhalikutty MP has asked the CPI (M) to make an "introspection" of its strategies against the Sangh Parivar and BJP in the light of shocking defeat in Tripura. Senior party leaders Nitin Gandkari and Jual Oram have been appointed as election prabharis to decide the party's chief ministerial candidate which will thereafter be forwarded to its parliamentary committee.
