Abstract:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has equated the recent victory of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in assembly elections in Tripura in North East region of India with the rising sun which is "saffron" in colour. The absence of electoral competition of national parties in the region has played a crucial role in the polity of the region taking a different course. The electoral success of BJP in recent couple of years in various states of the region, achieved through policy of alignments and coalition building through electoral engineering has brought the region into political limelight of the nation. This meteoric rise of a national political party in the region has various implications for the regional as well as national polity, peace process and development in the region and India's foreign policy design of Act East Policy.
