Its vote share is likely to dip to slightly over two per cent, the EC source said. The tactical line approved in the party's central committee meeting held in Kolkata in January this year says that there will be no alliance or understanding with the Congress.

Kolkata: The trouncing of the CPI (M) in the Tripura Assembly elections has forced it to rethink strategies and increased the clamour within the party for an "adjustment" with the Congress, ahead of a crucial party meet next month.

In Agartala town, cries of "Jai Siyaram and Bharat Mata ki Jai" filled the air at the BJP office where national general secretary Ram Madhav declared that his party will form the next government in Tripura.

In Nagaland, the Congress tally of 21 of the 59 seats - two more than the NPP's - marks a setback for the party that had bagged 29 seats in 2013 and later won a by-election to dominate the 60-member Assembly with 30 seats.

"Communist ideology wants us to stay happy with little", said Prasenjit Banik, a 27-year-old student of rural management and development in Tripura University and a resident of Santirbazar in South Tripura district. "It is also the tradition in the northeast", he said.

The leaders of NDPP-BJP alliance on Sunday called on Nagaland Governor P B Acharya and staked claim to form the next government in the state. "We thank the people of Tripura for giving us the opportunity to serve them for the past 25 years". The politics of violence has been defeated by the power of democracy in Tripura.

The NPF was in power in Nagaland along with the BJP, but its former leader Neiphiu Rio broke off and formed the National Democratic Progress Party, BJP's new alliance partner.

Karat will have tough time rebutting this line, as the results will give more lung power to his opponents, including the Bengal unit, that has been vociferously arguing for an alliance with the Congress.
