As trends indicated a Congress victory in all the three states which went to polls, AICC headquarters here reverberated with drum beats and bursting of crackers as party supporters started celebrating the 'win'.
Impromptu dance to the tunes of drum beats by Congress supporters carrying party flags could be seen since morning in front of the headquarters on Akbar Road and the adjoining 10 Janpath, the residence of party President Sonia Gandhi.
Anticipating a Congress victory as indicated by the exit polls, the party supporters had gathered even before the first result was officially announced.
Carrying placards with photographs of Sonia Gandhi, AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra, the supporters shouted slogans and danced on the streets holding the traffic on the busy Akbar Road.
They distributed sweets amongst themselves and also to the mediapersons who were present there.
A 'Vijay Rath' (victory chariot) was brought in front of the entrance of 10 Janpath and supporters hailed Gandhi for providing a leadership which led to victory first in the Lok Sabha polls and then in the Assembly elections in the three states.
A steady stream of visitors met Gandhi to congratulate her for the success of the party in the elections.
