Tripura election 2023 results live: What Manik Saha's win signifies | 5 points
1. The victory of the BJP as well as Dr Manik Saha shows that the BJP was right in replacing Biplab Deb at the very last moment. Biplab Deb was replaced after the RSS found out that Deb had cost the party a loss in popularity through his misgovernance.
2. Dr Manik Saha's 'Mr Clean' image has worked well in the state.
3. Manik Saha had only 10 months but the results prove that he managed to do a decent job of saving the party's image.
4. Dr Saha's medical feat is also awe-inspiring for many voters. In January, Saha shared on Twitter how he conducted surgery on a 10-year-old boy after a long time at Tripura Medical College. Netizens praised him for still performing his duties as a doctor and said it was “truly inspiring”.
5. The victory also makes way for a second term for Dr Saha as the chief minister.
