Northeast elections 2018 results, BJP sweeps Tripura, Leading on Nagaland, Congress at high on  Meghalaya

Counting of votes has begun at 8 am in the three northeast states – Nagaland, Meghalaya and Tripura. The results of the important-stakes assembly elections in the three states will be known later today. The BJP is looking to take all the three northeast states, confident of its completion after its two successive victories in Assam and Manipur in the last two years. Tripura has a Left Front government under Chief Minister Manik Sarkar; the Congress led by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma is in power in Meghalaya, and in Nagaland, the Naga People’s Front is working with BJP’s support. But all these could switch today, depending on which party gets the most public support to form the government in the three states. Some of the main candidates to watch for are Mukul Sangma (Meghalaya), Biplab Kumar Deb (Tripura), Agatha Sangma (Meghalaya),  Manik Sarkar (Tripura), Neiphiu Rio (Nagaland), and TR Zeliang (Nagaland).
