2018's first round of elections are over and the result is the same as it has been in almost all elections, barring three since 2014. A BJP surge. Three North eastern states going to polls, and a performance to be proud of by the BJP in all these states. In an year which is being billed as the pre-Lok sabha election year, where all development will be analysed how they will impact the big national picture. A huge victory in Tripura is going to go a long way in bolstering BJP's confidence and momentum as it moves ahead.
