Bhartiya Janta Party for the one more time creates history by winning the Assembly elections of Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat. The supporters of the party are clear that this is just the magic of Modi Wave. This victory is somehow making the way clear for the party for the Assembly seats of the states of Northeast having polls next year.

BJP eyeing on next phase of polls

On Monday, the ‘Modi Wave’ has blown in Gujarat and Himachal for the one more time. The party has won 99 seats out of 182 in Gujarat Assembly.

Congress, on the other hand, gave a tough competition to the rival party and won 77 seats that was an achievement for the Congress.

On the other hand, BJP also placed itself as the government in Himachal Pradesh has 68 assembly seats, out of which  BJP won 44 seats and Congress won 21.

After this big victory, BJP is now eyeing on the three states of Northeast that are having Assembly elections for 60 seats each.

BJP is trying to make grounds in these states and for the purpose, PM Modi has visited Meghalaya, one of the poll-bound states to blow the conch for giving a kick start to BJP’s election campaign.

PM Modi being the star campaigner of BJP will visit Tripura and  Nagaland as well to fulfill the purpose soon and this will start the campaign of the party in these states.

The Meghalaya fragment of the party is focussing towards the vision of the need for a change in the state and for this, they have given a name to the election campaign and that is ‘Rally for Change’.

The party keeping an eye on the next phase of polls is trying every way possible to make a space in the hearts of the populace.

The party has even let the doors open for the like-minded parties to form an alliance to win over the ruling Congress in the state.

The party hinted that they are open to the National People’s Party(NPP) to come and form an alliance with BJP for the 60 Assembly seats of Meghalaya.

Later, the NPP quashed all the speculations made by the BJP leader Madhav of hinting an alliance with the NPP. After this failed attempt, BJP is now using its Trump Card and that is the Star Campaigner PM Modi who recently visited the state.

During his address at the Rally for Change Election Campaign, he countered the ruling party Congress of being negligent towards the duties and responsibilities towards the stated and its populace.

On the other hand, talking about Tripura, BJP here also trying to root its candidates to govern the state. The major obstacle for BJP in Tripura is the tribal communities that are having one-sided thinking and ideologies that follow the leftists.

The party is trying hard to make an alliance with one of the Tribal parties including IPFT or others those are having dominance over the communities.

This effort also seems to go in vain as the Indigenous Tribal party has put forward some demands that are difficult to be fulfilled by the BJP if it makes the government in the state.

One of the demands is a separate Twipraland for the Tribal people to live peacefully and lead their life with their own community.

Nagaland is the only state where the formation of BJP is possible as compared to the other two states as the party is in alliance with the Naga People’s Front(NPF) and a major hurdle for the party was CM TR Zeliang and its faction of NPF that is trying to sort out the issues between the two factions of the party.

BJP despite having challenges in the Northeastern states has some positive points too and one of this is the recent winning of the party both in Himachal and Gujarat.

The party has eradicated Congress governance from Himachal and with this a dynasty has also come to an end. This winning may have some impact on the upcoming polls in all the three states of the Northeast part of India that is having an election next year in the month of February.
