Assam chief minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma on February 28 said that the NDA will form governments in all the three states of Northeast which went to polls.

Sarma, who is also the convenor of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), said that no NDA partners will enter into any alliance with Congress or the Trinamool Congress.

When asked about candidates for the chief minister’s post in the three states, Sarma stated that there will be a status quo in Tripura and Nagaland.

“Tripura will have a BJP CM, while we are in a coalition government in Nagaland,” he said.

For Meghalaya, the CM will be decided after considering the number of seats won by the BJP.

The results for the assembly elections held on February 16 in Tripura and February 27 in Nagaland and Meghalaya will be declared on March 2.

According to the exit polls, the BJP is predicted to win a majority in Tripura. The NDPP-BJP alliance is expected to win a majority in Nagaland.

In Meghalaya, the exit polls have predicted that the National People’s Party (NPP) will emerge as the largest party.
