The ruling party BJP headquarters in Delhi wore a relatively deserted look on Tuesday, while Congress workers celebrated their party’s good show in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh at its headquarters in New Delhi.
The Delhi Police erected barricades near the BJP headquarters at ITO in New Delhi as a precautionary measure to manage crowd, expecting the arrival of party workers following the results of Assembly polls in five States.
However, BJP workers did not turn up at party headquarters on Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, even as celebrations broke out at Congress headquarters on Akbar Road.
Trends showed the Congress ahead in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan and locked in a tantalising, see-saw battle in Madhya Pradesh.
According to trends on the Election Commission website, Congress is likely to get an absolute majority in Chhattisgarh and is reaching the simple majority mark in Rajasthan while going neck-and-neck in Madhya Pradesh.
The BJP is in power in all three Hindi heartland States.
