New Delhi: Celebrating Congress’ good show in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, party workers burst crackers, danced to the dhol and played with gulal. Party headquarters in Delhi was crowded with workers who were carrying the party flag. They lauded Rahul Gandhi’s leadership in steering the Congress towards victory.
Sweets were distributed and big banners were put up on walls. Congress workers rejoiced amidst chants of ‘Rahul Gandhi Zindabad’ and ‘Jeet gaya bhai jeet gaya, Rahul Gandhi jeet gaya’. Senior Congress leaders, including Navjot Singh Sidhu and Priyanka Chaturvedi, also joined the celebrations at the 24, Akbar Road office.
PTI has quoted Sidhu as saying, “It was a united effort in preparing and campaigning for polls. The leader at the top was inspiring everybody. Rahul ji has exhibited great character in a time of crisis, like a captain guiding a ship in choppy waters.”
