Elections in Northeast States: The election schedule of the three northeastern states is going to be announced today.
For this, the Election Commission is going to hold a press conference today i.e. Jan 18 at 2.30 pm, where the election program will be announced.
Let us tell you that the term of these three assemblies is ending on different dates in March.
The term of the Nagaland assembly is going to end on March 12 this year, while the term of Meghalaya and Tripura will end on March 15 and March 22 respectively.
Elections are to be held in a total of nine states this year. Apart from Nagaland, Meghalaya and Tripura, assembly elections will also be held in Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan and Telangana.
Apart from this, assembly elections are also likely to be held in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir this year.
The Legislative Assembly of the Union Territory has been dissolved since November 2018. This election to be held in Jammu and Kashmir will be the first after the Center revoked Article 370 and withdrew the statehood in 2019.
Let us tell you that at present there is a BJP government in Tripura, where Manik Saha is the Chief Minister, while here this time Mamata Banerjee's party TMC seems to be presenting a strong claim.
In Meghalaya, Congress emerged as the single largest party in 2018 but failed to form the government.
After this, the BJP allied with the National People's Party and now NPP leader Conrad Sangma is the Chief Minister.
Whereas, in Nagaland too, BJP is in government with NDPP i.e. National Democratic Progressive Party.
