The NPP, which secured 19 seats on its own, has the backing of six United Democratic Party (UDP) legislators, four People's Democratic Front (PDF) MLAs, two each from the BJP and Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) MLAs and an Independents legislator, taking the combined strength of the alliance to 34. It also looked like it could win a majority with support from other groups in Meghalaya and Nagaland states. Kerala is the only state now governed by Left parties.

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju had said on Saturday that the BJP could not form an alliance with the NPF due to disagreements over seat-sharing.

"People in Karnataka are fed up with rampant corruption...the Congress and CPI (M) are in a race to lose their relevance and at present CPI (M) is leading", he said.

Moily also rejected suggestions that the country was heading towards a "Congress-mukt Bharat", and the Left parties were going to be irrelevant in some years from now.

"Though almost the entire council of ministers was camping in the two Assembly seats, it was the CM's charisma alone which brought the party close to upsetting Congress at least in Mungaoli. It is an endorsement of the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the people of the Northeast", he told in a press conference. "We will continue to oppose the BJP and its divisive agenda not only in Tripura but all over India", Sitaram Yechury, CPM general secretary said after the results were declared.
