Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to celebrate its historic win in Left bastion Tripura as Vijay Diwas across the country.
Riding the crest of a Modi wave, the BJP on Saturday demolished the communist citadel of Tripura, winning a two-third majority with ally Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) and ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI(M)-led Left Front.
The party cadre erupted in joy after BJP on Saturday managed the impossible task of going from one per cent vote to clear majority within two years in Tripura Assembly.
Pulling of a historic victory, the BJP-IPFT combined won 43 out of 59 Tripura constituencies. The BJP on its own won 35 seats, four more than the half-way mark, while its ally IPFT won eight seats. In a remarkable performance, the alliance swept all the 20 seats reserved for tribals.

The BJP leaders, including Amit Shah, credited the win to hard work and vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
PM Modi set the party with the goal of securing power in Karnataka, Kerala, Odisha and West Bengal, saying the golden period is yet to come until and unless they have won these states.
Exhorting partymen to work for establishing BJP governments in these states, PM Modi said the BJP was spread across the nation like a Banyan tree on the efforts of its workers.
"For all-round development, a popular approach of 360 degrees is followed. It is considered to be the perfect approach for bringing good results. It has its own importance," Modi said.
