The Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief first attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi for not heeding to her suggestion of fighting polls in alliance with her and other local parties.

Its ally IPFT, which fielded candidates in nine seats, got almost 8 per cent votes.

CPM, which is the largest party of the Left Front, has been reduced to a mere nine seats in the Lok Sabha, a sharp decline from 43 members in 2005 and 15 in 2009. The NPP had won only two seats out of 32 it contested. Its vote share is likely to dip to slightly over two per cent, the EC source said.

"We have told our students' parents that they should all vote for the BJP too".

The BJP, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his pointsman Amit Shah, has been aggressively expanding its footprints in the region ever since it came to power in 2014.

Sarkar, however, will continue to be the caretaker Chief Minister until the new government sworn in. "But now, after the defeat in Tripura, it is a completely new situation where we have to rethink our strategies and political line", Mollah said.

"The victory of BJP is not an ordinary electoral victory".

"Election analysts in India will have to understand the journey from No one to One, shunya se shikhar tak". Modi took a brief pause when there was a call for prayers from a nearby mosque, and also paid respects along with the audience to deceased party workers, allegedly victims of political violence, by keeping silence for a while.
