Cong respects NE mandate, will win back trust: Rahul Gandhi

While Congress couldn't win a seat in the states of Tripura and Nagaland, it failed to form the government in Meghalaya despite winning the 21 seats, most number of seats by any party in the election, as UDP extended support to the local party National People's Party (NPP). Tell tale signs of BJP s blind quest for power superseding the stability of region, propagation of democracy, nipping the separatist tendencies and ignoring core issues of region are already visible, Surjewala said.

Top party leaders Ahmed Patel and Kamal Nath rushed to Shillong to talk to regional parties but to no avail.

Veteran party leader and former chief minister V S Achuthanandan urged the party leadership to join hands with secular forces to fight the Sangh Parivar. The chief ministerial candidate Conrad Sangma and his party NPP have promised division of Meghalaya and a separate state of Garoland, he said, asking if other parties agreed to this.

Elections were held in 59 seats in all three states due to different reasons despite them having 60-member assemblies. The Congress had won 10 seats in 2013 Assembly polls. Rahul Gandhi's vanishing act at another crucial moment has invited criticism from all corners and deservedly so.

Adam Lindsay and Ray Houghton will fearless the elements to bring us commentary from Wembley. That was Kane's 35 goal in all competitions this season, equalling his tally from 2016-17.

The elections in 59 seats of the 60-member Assembly were held on February 18 and results for the State, Meghalaya and Nagaland were announced on Saturday that made BJP nearly sweep the entire North-East, capturing power in seven of the eight States (except Mizoram) in the region that was once dominated by the Congress and the Left. And after the results of these elections even more rapidly so.

However, winning in the northeastern region where it used to be a marginal player is a remarkable feat for the BJP. While all their energy was focussed on Gujarat earlier, it seems Karnataka has now replaced Gujarat as the focal point.

After assuming office, the BJP Government will have its task cut out in Tripura with a host of promises it made to electorate. The Congress had 36.53 per cent has come down to 1.8 per cent only.

Meanwhile, Christian Coleman enhanced his status as the new sprint king of athletics by storming to 60m gold. The European 60m hurdles champion was the quickest qualifier in the field in 7.53sec.

Elections to Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan during 2018 will reflect the electoral mood better. The Nationalist Congress Party of Sharad Pawar has won one seat. This kind of mismanagement is criminal and the Congress can not afford it at this crucial juncture. Mizoram is the only state in the northeast with a non-NDA government. It seems Congress is still paying for that misjudgement as Sarma is not only key to BJP in Assam but hugely popular in adjacent states as well.

Tripura has increased the footprint of the BJP in the North East dramatically.

The BJP's audacious display in unseating the five-term Left regime led by the popular Manik Sarkar can compare to the compelling regime change effected by Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress-when they ejected the Left Front that had ruled West Bengal for 35 years.
