Election Results 2023: After BJP's Tripura, Nagaland wins, 'Proud PM Narendra Modi' tweets
Tripura and Nagaland were won by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies. By defeating the Left-Congress alliance and TIPRA Motha, which made a remarkable debut in the assembly elections, the saffron party was able to hold onto power in Tripura.
In the 60-member Tripura assembly, the party has won 32 seats, and in Nagaland, it has won 37 seats in coalition with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party.
In Meghalaya, the TMC, BJP, UDP, and Congress are in a close race for second place as Meghalaya's chief minister Conrad Sangma's NPP maintains a consistent lead in at least 25 seats.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the people of Tripura and said that he is proud of all Tripura BJP workers for their spectacular efforts. He said, "Thank you Tripura! This is a vote for progress and stability. @BJP4Tripura will continue to boost the state's growth trajectory.
