The BJP attained the majority mark in Tripura after winning 31 seats of the 60-member assembly. The state underwent elections on February 16 and the votes were counted on March 2.

The Tripura election was predicted to be a clash between the BJP-IPFT alliance and the Congress-left alliance, however, the voting trends saw a surprising change because of the debutant TIPRA Motha led by ex-royal family member Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barma.

The TIPRA Motha received an unprecedented response for a debutant party and led the election to be a triangular fight between the three by claiming victory on 13 seats coming a close second.

As per the reports, the BJP alone registered a win on 31 seats and is continuing to lead on 1 other, whereas BJP’s ally Indigenous People’s Front won 1 seat. The Congress-left alliance together won 14 as Congress was able to secure 3 seats while the Communist Party of India (Marxist) claimed victory on 11 seats.

However, he decided to stay to his Lucknow seat, opening the door for other leaders to set their mark in Gandhinagar.
