Three of seven sisters -- Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya -- are going to polls next month. While Tripura will go to polls on February 16, elections will be held in the other two northeastern states on February 27. It is too early to guess as to which way the political winds are blowing in the three states having 60 seats each. However, we can analyse economic challenges in each of the states, which may decide the political future there.
A common theme of these three states is that they are heavily dependent on the Centre for their expenditure, both development and non-development. Let us analyse their economic issues and present a brief political scene.
