The BJP is inching towards forming the government in almost all the three Northeastern States where elections were held, exit polls stated.
While exit polls predicted a landslide victory for the BJP-IPFT combine in Tripura, the ruling Manik Sarkar-led Left Front government could see its tally come down to around 10 to 20 seats from the current 50 it enjoys in the State assembly.
While the JanKiBaat-NewsX exit poll predicted that the BJP-IPFT alliance in Tripura will win 35-45 seats, an exit poll by AxisMyIndia predicted anything between 44 and 50 seats for the combine.
According to JanKiBaat-NewsX, the ruling Left front is likely to get 14-23 seats with vote share of 45-46 per cent. AxisMyIndia poll predicts the Left to win 9-15 seats with a vote share of 40 per cent in Tripura.

The Congress could lose another State with the exit polls predicting the Congress to come second.
