Ahmedabad, Dec 23 (UNI) Celebrations started at the Gujarat BJP headquarters in the Muslim-dominated area of Khanpur here today as soon as the party established early leads in the state assembly polls while the state Congress office wore a deserted look.
The saffron flag fluttered at different places in Ahmedabad as BJP workers celebrated their massive victory with a grand display of fireworks at the party office.
Police had thrown a tight security umbrella around the BJP office as senior party leaders started reaching there to greet each other.
Amid cries of ''Narendra Modi zindabad'', the party workers distributed sweets and welcomed the media personnel with folded hands.
The Chief Minister also visited the party office in the afternoon and acknowledged the greetings of his supporters. ''This is the victory of the people of Gujarat,'' he said, as he waved to the crowd.
In sharp contrast, very few party workers were seen at the Congress office at Paldi. No senior party leader even turned up at the Congress office, knowing fully well that the news was not 'pleasant' for them.
