Hours after results projected a clear picture in three northeastern states, Union minister JP Nadda said that his party was confident of forming a government in Tripura, Nagaland, and Meghalaya.
While the party has scored majority in Tripura, in Nagaland it is banking on the support of NPF. In Meghalaya, the math is going to be tougher as Congress has emerged as the single largest party with 21 seats while BJP on its own could manage only 2 seats. JD(U) Nagaland said it will support BJP in forming a government.
