New Delhi, March 4: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which has performed well in the Left stronghold Tripura and Nagaland in the Assembly polls are celebrating Vijay Diwas today.

The ruling party won a two-thirds majority with its ally Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT), ending a 25-year-old rule by the Left Front and are set to form the next government in Nagaland with Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP). However, the Congress managed to retain its hold by winning 21 seats in Meghalaya. 

After BJP's spectacular win in both Tripura and Nagaland Assembly Elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed his party members at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi and congratulated them for astounding results.

Prime Minister Modi during his speech said that so many BJP karyakartas have sacrificed their lives. The Left party has received a befitting reply for spreading ‘Bhay’ and ‘Bhram’ among people in Tripura.

Hitting out at Left for not accepting the defeat in Tripura, PM remarked that to win or to lose in elections are a part of democracy. That is the beauty of democracy. One must accept their defeat with a sporting spirit.

“The saffron wave has swept the north east. When a sun sets, its colour is also red,” the PM said, drawing a parallel to the end of the Left’s 25-year-rule in Tripura.

Lauding the historic victory, the Prime Minister said, “In vastu also, the north east position is very important. According to vastu shastra, north east is the most auspicious side. I am happy that north east is now a part of our Development journey. With the north east now taken care of, the foundation for the rest of the country has automatically become solid.”

Assuring the citizens of north east that the centre will be at their back, PM Modi said that the people of north east used to feel that New Delhi is too far away for them. But we have created a situation with DoNER ministry that brought Delhi to their doorstep. We sent more ministers to north east in the last 4 years than any other government since independence.

Another major development has been a complete decimation of Congress which till last election held sizable vote share in mid-30 per cent. The party failed to even open its account.

Election in 59 seats for the 60-member Assembly was held on February 18. Polling was countermanded in one seat due to the death of a CPI(M) candidate.
