In Tripura, two exit polls have suggested the BJP dethroning the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led government that has had an uninterrupted run since 1993.
Ahead of Saturday’s counting, both the CPI-M and the BJP claimed that they will form the next government in the state.
Balloting in Tripura’s Charilam has been deferred to March 12 after the death of a CPI-M candidate.
Voting in Nagaland was held in 59 constituencies as three-time Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party has been declared elected unopposed from Northern Angami-II constituency.
