Like Manipur, Goa, BJP usurped power through proxy in Meghalaya: Rahul

Conrad Sangma takes oath as Meghalaya CM in presence of BJP top brass

The same factor is likely to help the party form the government in Meghalaya as well, where it has got just two seats on its own, but the Congress has fallen well short of a majority. Now, the whole of the region is under the rule of BJP and its allies except for Mizoram.

With the curtains having been drawn to the Nagaland Assembly Election 2018 on March 3 with the completion of vote counting, it became clear that the NDPP-BJP alliance weaved its magic as they managed to garner 29 seats together. It all started a year ago as BJP wrested power from Congress bastions - Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh.

After the saffron party registered victory in Tripura and overwhelming response in Nagaland and Meghalaya, the Bharatiya Janata Party Parliamentary Board has appointed central observers for the three North-eastern States.

A Communist Party of India (Marxist) delegation on Sunday met the director general of police in Tripura to complain of violence against party workers after the results of the Assembly elections were announced on Saturday, The Hindu reported. It has made its presence felt in the state by joining hands with National People's Party (which won 19 seats), United Democratic Party (UDP), People's Democratic Front (PDF), Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) and an independent candidate.

Modi's BJP is now governing 19 of India's 29 states, compared with five by the Congress party. It failed to open its account in Nagaland and Tripura.

Jayarajan, who is also the private secretary of chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, alleged that the Congress leaders and its cadres had moved towards the BJP. The party's senior functionary and a minister Assam government, Himanta Biswa Sarma, told reporters that the outgoing chief minister of Tripura, Manik Sarkar could not take shelter in Bangladesh.

Now, BJP-led NDA assumed power in seven out of eight northeastern states.

Even in Bihar, where former PCC chief Ashok Choudhary recently quit the Congress along with three other MLCs to join the JD (U), Joshi was blamed for the development. "The golden period of BJP will begin after it wins Karnataka and West Bengal", Shah said, also including the less populous Kerala in the fray.
