BJP usurped power through proxy in Meghalaya:Rahul


Extending his best wishes to people of Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya, Mr Surjewala said, "We sincerely pray & hope that peace, progress, cohabitation & development will be the agendas pursued by new governments. The Congress, which had ruled for decades in the post-Independence period, has become weak now", the 94-year-old Marxist veteran said.

Sangma met the governor on Sunday evening to stake claim to form a coalition government in Meghalaya.

The elections in 59 seats of the 60-member Assembly were held on February 18.

He even showed gratitude to the Congress party workers for their efforts in the assembly election of Tripura, Nagaland, and Meghalaya. It has made its presence felt in the state by joining hands with National People's Party (which won 19 seats), United Democratic Party (UDP), People's Democratic Front (PDF), Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) and an independent candidate.

IPFT president N C Debbarma also asked the BJP to select the chief minister from among the tribal MLAs.

In the aftermath of the recently-concluded assembly polls in three northeastern states, Congress President Rahul Gandhi today said the party accepts the people's mandate and will strive to win back the trust of the electorate. "But, the state will be free from BJP", he said. It won 12 seats out of 20 it contested in Nagaland.




But they were outsmarted by a quick reaction team of the BJP, comprising Union ministers KJ Alphons and Kiren Rijiju besides Assam minister and former Congress leader Himanta Biswa Sarma.

After the saffron party's victory in Tripura yesterday, a total of 21 states are under the BJP kitty.

The Congress has already parachuted its two senior leaders Ahmed Patel and Mukul Wasnik to try and form the new government in Meghalaya.

With talks still underway with the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muviah) and other Naga nationalist groups, the BJP is spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a partner.

"There is nothing to rejoice in the win in a state having only about 26 lakh voters and two parliamentary seats with a difference of about only five per cent votes", Banerjee said reacting to BJP's win in Tripura ending the 25 year-long Left regime there.
