"The Congress, which had ruled for decades in the post-Independence period, has become weak now", the 94-year-old Marxist veteran said. He added that BJP is obsessed with power and used tactics, used to form governments in Goa and Manipur, to disregard mandate of people of Meghalaya.

The BJP, which drew a blank in the last elections, got two seats.

In Assam, he was criticised for not properly handling the rebellion by Himanta Biswa Sarma, who later quit the Congress to join the BJP. "Now it is a question of looking at people who would like to look at common agenda acceptable to the state's people and come together", outgoing Chief Minister Mukul Sangma told IANS.

A verity of factors, not limited to anti-incumbency, led the BJP claiming victory in Tripura and could see the party form governments in Meghalaya and Nagaland, post-election the way it did in Manipur past year.

The UDP and HSPDP, which stitched a pre-poll alliance, won only six and two seats respectively, while the newly floated People's Democratic Front won four. mThe BJP won two seats and the NCP and KHNAM one seats each, besides three independents.

BJP, which did not have a single councillor in all of Tripura and lost its deposit in 49 constituencies out of 50 in 2013 assembly elections, had managed this land sliding victory.

Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Sunday tendered his resignation before Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy, following an electoral debacle in the state's Legislative Assembly election.

The differences are on key issues such as the bifurcation of Tripura and Meghalaya, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said in a series of tweets as the BJP was set to form government with its partners in the northeast states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland. "There will be no impact of the results of the Northeastern states in Karnataka".

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

From being an insignificant player in the Northeast's politics, the BJP has come a long way since its emphatic win in the national parliamentary polls almost four years ago.

Interestingly, nearly all the northeastern states where BJP has come to power in the last two years share one common feature - one party or alliance was in power for a decade or more before BJP and its allies took over.
