He says the results are a bad news for the Congress Party. Its influence is gradually declining in this region which was its traditional stronghold. Tripura has elected the Left Front to power for the fifth consecutive term, largely because of the participatory politics it practised. The Naga People's Front has won the majority in Nagaland and in Meghalaya, the Congress Party got the majority.

Prof. Gul Mohammad Wani of Kashmir University and Shujaat Bukhari, senior journalist based in Srinagar talk about the response of the Indian state over the past year following widespread protests in the Kashmir valley featuring youth pelting stones at security establishments. They identify a major trust deficit among Kashmiris about the Indian state and suggest that the Indian state should work towards overcoming the deep alienation by addressing issues related to human rights violations. The promising headway in working toward a political solution in the mid 2000s by engaging with Pakistan and other political actors in Kashmir should be used as a reference point as work is done to come to a "final political solution in Kashmir".
