For Chandni Chowk's sitting MP Kapil Sibal, who retained his seat, it has been a long three months of campaigning, but Saturday's victory more than made up for all the fatigue. His wife Promila, who campaigned along with her husband, said the whole family had chipped in. 

"The past three-and-a-half months have been gruelling for us. All the padyatras (marches) and campaigning in the heat has not been easy and we are still recuperating from it. But after yesterday's results, how could we stop from celebrating?" Promila told IANS Sunday.

"For all the 10 assembly constituencies in Chandni Chowk, we had one family member in charge. Therefore the entire election process has been a taxing time for his brothers and the whole extended family. After the victory, we had a party last night which went on till 1 a.m.," she said. 

Urmila Mishra, Congress' surprise winner Mahabal Mishra's wife, also said that the family got together for a hearty meal after a long time. 

"After we came to know about his victory, we distributed sweets amongst our relatives and friends. Also we all had dinner together, after a long time," Urmila said. 

Mishra won from the West Delhi constituency. 

New Delhi constituency's Congress candidate Ajay Maken's wife Radhika said they are planning a party in the coming week. 

"We knew that he (Ajay Maken) would win, but we are absolutely elated at the Congress' landslide victory across the country. We will have a thanksgiving tea party in a week's time for all the people who have supported us and worked so hard," Radhika said. 

The Congress' landslide win Saturday, in which it won all the seven Lok Sabha seats, has been attributed to the party's "good governance" and its development plank by party leaders. The victory came six months after the party scored a thumping win in the Delhi assembly elections. 

Congress leaders' wives say their homes have been continuously flooded with party workers and supporters. 

"It's an open house. Since yesterday people have been streaming in to give their wishes and congratulate him," Promila said.
