  • BJP Unlikely to Form Coalition in Meghalaya

    Rajiv Pratap Rudy, a senior BJP leader, has announced that the saffron party won't be entering into an alliance with any party for the Meghalaya polls either before or after the polls. Rudy was in the state to campaign in the constituency of North Shillong. Other than BJP, NPP (National People's Party) too has maintained that it won't form a coalition with other parties. The party has also pitted candidates against those of the saffron party in a number of state constituencies. However, speculations doing the rounds suggest that both parties would form an alliance to take on the Congress. Meghalaya Election is scheduled to be held on Feb 27, and results will be declared on March 3.

  • Northeastern States: A Tough Battle for Congress
    The Congress, although, is being seen as a powerful political force in the state of Meghalaya, has been considered only a side player in the poll-bound states of Nagaland and Tripura. The party's campaigning too has been taking a backseat in the northeastern states. The quivering base in the northeastern states started with the defeat in Assam polls in 2016. The party also faced defeat in Manipur and had a poor show in Sikkim as well. Congress also faces a challenge from the regional political parties in the states. Currently, the party is only left with Mizoram under its rule in the eastern part of the country. While Tripura election will be held on this Sunday, Meghalaya and Nagaland Election will be held on Feb 27. Results of all the three states will be declared on March 3.
