Congress claimed to form a government after its coalition with BJP reduced to a minority. A week later, NPP said it would keep backing the BJP.
On June 24, 2020, reports stated that the BJP-led alliance government headed by CM Biren would stay in power and that the NPP would continue to support the government. The news came after an NPP-led delegation met BJP chief J P Nadda and Union Home Minister in New Delhi. The delegation comprised of Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma of NPP, Deputy Chief Minister of Manipur Yumnam Joy Kumar Singh and Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
