BJP celebrates party's victory in Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya

But they were outsmarted by a quick reaction team of the BJP, comprising Union ministers KJ Alphons and Kiren Rijiju besides Assam minister and former Congress leader Himanta Biswa Sarma.

"We will provide Tripura the good government that the state deserves", he said.

Sarkar, 69, put in his papers a day after the ruling Left Front dominated by his Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) suffered a humiliating defeat in the February 18 assembly elections by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) alliance.

As the PM arrived, he was greeted with a welcome from BJP president Amit Shah and senior party leaders as they celebrated the party's victory in Tripura and impressive performance in Nagaland polls. "My honest thanks to each and every Congress worker who toiled for the party", Gandhi said on Twitter.

As the results of the Assembly elections in the three northeastern states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland were announced on March 3, it emerged that the Congress had been whitewashed in Tripura and Nagaland but had a fighting chance of forming a government in Meghalaya. This even as BJP was a constituent of the current government with Naga People's Front (NPF), NDPP's political rival.

"They have supported our slogan for change", he said, adding that the CPI (M) gave a "spirited fight". A coalition of communist parties and some other groups are ruling southern Kerala state, while small regional groups are heading the other states.

The leader also said that an electoral alliance could not be forged among parties having different policy approaches. "We will leave no stone unturned in transforming Tripura", Modi said.

In Nagaland, which witnessed violence in some parts before, during and after elections, it is expected that hectic parleys are likely to take place in the next few days.

This is being read as the party leadership's wariness about leaving the post-results machinations to Joshi alone.

Sarma said there was no maturity in Rahul Gandhi as he sent four AICC leaders to form government in Meghalaya without understanding the ground reality.

"Time and again, election after election, the people of India are reposing their faith in the positive and development oriented agenda of the NDA", Modi tweeted.

Considered the champion of the Hindi-speaking region and the religious ideology of Hindutva, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party has won many state polls since it came to power following the national election in 2014.
