As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to form government in the Left Bastion Tripura, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that victory in Tripura is historic as well as ideological win for the BJP.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “The historic victory in Tripura is as much an ideological one. It is a win for democracy over brute force and intimidation. Today peace and non-violence has prevailed over fear. We will provide Tripura the good government that the state deserves.”
In another tweet, PM Modi said that through the results of North East assembly elections, the people of the country have proved that they believe in development oriented agenda of the NDA and not in the disruptive and disconnected politics of any kind. "Time and again, election after election, the people of India are reposing their faith in the positive and development oriented agenda of the NDA. People do not have the time or respect for negative, disruptive and disconnected politics of any kind," he tweeted.
The BJP dethroned the Manik Sarkar-led Left government that has been in power in the state for 25 years.
The Prime Minister also thanked the people of Nagaland and Meghalaya for their support to the party.
Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also said that winning Tripura is a historic victory for the BJP.
"This is a historic win. This is massive development in the politics of India," Prasad said.
Prasad also added that the result will affect Kerala politics too and said, "Leftists first lost West Bengal now they have been dethroned from Tripura. This will clearly affect the politics of Kerala."
Tripura went to polls on February 18, while voting in Meghalaya and Nagaland took place on February 27
