politics of development and his commitment to the welfare of North-Eastern region of India.

Shah sought to point out that the party's vote share had crossed the 50 per cent mark, including their alliance partner Indigenous People's Front of Tripura, from a lowly 1.54 per cent.

"It is a day of joy for me and crores of BJP workers".


In a press conference after the historic victory in Tripura, Amit Shah, said, " In 2014 Narendra Modi Ji had said western side of the nation has developed a lot but the same has not reached the eastern side yet. The victory of the BJP is important in many ways.... State BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey also attributed the party's performance to the Prime Minister and Shah.

Meanwhile, the BJD was quick to react to Saha's claim and termed the BJP Chief is going "over confident".

Fadnavis said the BJP is now in power in 21 states covering 78 per cent of geographical area of the country, and will repeat its historical win in the 2019 general elections as well.


Shah said that the golden period of BJP would start after the party is able to win the upcoming assembly elections in Karnataka and elections in West Bengal, Kerala and Odisha when the assembly elections takes place in these states.

BJD candidate Rita Sahu garnered 102,871 votes piping her nearest rival Ashok Panigrahi from BJP by 41,933 votes.

The Congress party, which has been ruling Meghalaya, could not secure a victory in the state despite Rahul Gandhi spearheading the campaign in the northeastern state.
