Election Results Highlights: BJP submits letter of support to Conrad Sangma's NPP
Assembly Election 2023 Results LIVE: BJP-IPFT has retained power in Tripura despite the challenge from combined forces of Left parties and Congress and a second challenger in form of Pradyot Debbarma-led TIPRA Motha. In Nagaland too, NDPP-BJP alliance has already won 35 seats in 60-member assembly and is leading on two more seats. Meghalaya, however, is looking towards a hung assembly.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has been able to retain power in Tripura by thwarting the challenge from Left-Congress alliance and TIPRA Motha, which made an impressive debut in assembly elections. Despite winning 13 seats, TIPRA Motha will not be able to play the role of kingmaker as the Left-Congress alliance, which managed to win just 14 seats, ensured that the BJP comes to power on its own.

While BJP, for the first time, contested on all 60 seats in Meghalaya, it could register win in just three seats of the 59 that went to polls. Voting on one seat has been postponed because of a candidate's death. The BJP was a partner in the state government but broke its alliance with the ruling National People's Party (NPP). Chief minister Conrad Sangma had hinted that the two parties can again come together in case of a hung assembly.
