Assembly Elections: Counting Of Votes In 3 Northeastern States Tomorrow

2nd March 2018   ·   0 Comments

AGARTALA/KOHIMA/SHILLONG: The counting of votes for the Assembly elections in three Northeastern states — Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura — will be held tomorrow amid tight security, officials said.

The BJP has emerged as a strong contender in all the three states and two exit polls have predicted that the party would dethrone the 25-year-old Left Front government in Tripura and consolidate its position in the other two states.

While the Congress has been ruling Meghalaya for 10 years, the Naga People’s Front (NFP) has been in power in Nagaland since 2003, except for a three-month period of President’s rule in 2008.

Buoyed by the formation of governments in Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh, the BJP is making a bid to expand its footprints in the region.
