Agartala: The stunning saffron surge in the Northeast on Saturday decimated the Left in Tripura - one of its last two citadels - with the BJP ousting the CPI-M from power after 25 long years.

Riding on Saturday`s electoral victory, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah told BJP workers that their goal now should be to capture power in Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal and Odisha.

Pulling off a historic victory, the BJP and its ally Indigenous People`s Front of Tripura (IPFT), a tribal-dominated party, together won 43 out of 59 Tripura constituencies.

The BJP on its own won 35 seats, four more than the half-way mark, while its ally IPFT won eight seats. In a remarkable performance, the alliance swept all the 20 seats reserved for tribals.

The BJP, which had no MLAs in the outgoing Assembly and polled just 1.5 percent votes in the 2013 elections, losing deposits in 49 of the 50 constituencies it contested, secured over 42 percent of votes in the February 18, 2018, Tripura elections. 

The CPI-M which headed the ruling Left Front was reduced to just 15 seats - down from 50 in the last elections. None of its partners, including the CPI, Forward Bloc and Revolutionary Socialist Party, could open their account.

The Congress, which had 10 members in the outgoing assembly, drew a blank this time.
