Northeast elections results will not impact Karnataka polls: Congress

Northeast elections results will not impact Karnataka polls: Congress

She had attacked the CPI-M for not participating in the all-party rally, which was called by RJD chief Lalu Prasad, in Bihar past year.

"It is an endorsement of the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the people of the Northeast", he told in a press conference.

Sarkar has been the chief minister of Tripura since 1998.

Raja on Sunday underscored the need for all secular democratic parties to come together to stall the further expansion of the BJP-RSS combine.

Taking to Twitter, the CM said that in the midst of all the media speculation about Karnataka elections post Tripura results, people should remember the Assembly segments BJP has lost since 2014.

In Tripura, a state where the BJP previously had no seats in the assembly, the party won 35 out of 59 seats, ending a 25-year reign by the Communist Party of India (Marxist).

Hitting out at the previous Left and Congress regimes in the North East, Modi said the people there earlier were feeling cut off from the Indian mainstream because of policies and decisions that alienated them, but his government has been working relentlessly to wipe off this feeling.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief first attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi for not heeding to her suggestion of fighting polls in alliance with her and other local parties. The CPI-M now remains in power only in southern Kerala.

He said that CPI (M) would continue to oppose the BJP and its "divisive agenda" not only in Tripura but throughout the country. The party cadres had gathered here to celebrate BJP's victory in Left bastion Tripura. "But now, after the defeat in Tripura, it is a completely new situation where we have to rethink our strategies and political line", Mollah said.

A draft political resolution, which is going to be taken up by the party Congress in April, has ruled out any understanding or alliance with the Congress party.

The prime minister said people of northeast had a sense of alienation but his government worked overtime to remove it. The BJP has opened its account with two seats. In Meghalaya, one exit poll said the Congress would emerge as the single largest party, while another said Conrad Sangma's National People's Party (NPP) would be ahead of the ruling Congress, with the BJP finishing third. The people of the state had seen his governance from 2008 to 2013, during which many BJP ministers were also sent to jail on corruption charges, the party leader said.
