Bharatiya Janata Party workers dressed in party colours saffron and green celebrated by bursting crackers, distributing sweets and dancing to the tune of drums, outside the party office.
There were congratulatory hugs amid loud cheers for party leaders.
The workers, who had come to the party office early in anticipation of a victory, assembled in large numbers outside the gates of the Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg office. Many were armed with Holi colours.
Several BJP leaders, including Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, joined the celebrations. Sweets were arranged at short notice amid rousing slogans of "Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi" and "Bharat Mata ki Jai".
