Committed to winning back trust of people in northeast, says Rahul Gandhi

After the saffron party's victory in Tripura yesterday, a total of 21 states are under the BJP kitty.

Meghalaya had been under Congress rule and after losing the state, the party is now in power only in three other states, including Karnataka where elections are slated next month, and Puducherry.

The results of Tripura Assembly have been most significant.
