Hundreds of Congress supporters have been dancing to the tunes of dhol outside 24 Akbar Road, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) office, bursting crackers and distributing sweets. Waving placards with "Rahul Gandhi zindabad" written on them, party workers say Congress is winning in all five states.
"Voters are saying it's time to burst crackers. The BJP has killed the country. There are no jobs, farmers are committing suicide and small businesses have been destroyed," Congress leader Jagdish Sharma said.
"We are very happy. Let's wait for the final results, but we are sure we are winning. We are prepared for big celebrations," said a party worker.
