Tripura went to the polls on February 18 while elections in Meghalaya and Nagaland were held on February 27. Polling was held for 59 of 60 assembly seats in each of the three states for different reasons. In Tripura, the electoral fight is between the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which tied up with Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT). Two exit polls suggested the BJP dethroning the Manik Sarkar-led government that has had an uninterrupted run since 1993.

In Meghalaya, which saw around 84 per cent voting, the contest involves the ruling Congress, BJP, National People’s Party (NPP) and the newly floated People’s Democratic Front. Although the Conrad Kongkal Sangma-led party did not get into a pre-poll alliance with the BJP, the two are understood to have entered into an understanding with each other and are most likely to form the government in Meghalaya. While the Congress had won the record 29 seats in the last Assembly polls, the BJP had no MLA in the last polls.

All the exit polls have predicted exactly the same result and given BJP-NDPP combine between 27-32 seats, NPF 20-25 seats and Congress between 0-2 seats.
