Singh said this to reporters' queries on the sidelines of Indian Women Press Corps foundation day function, where he reached immediately after the Parliamentary Board meeting.
He said BJP will look for alliance in Maharashtra where it got 122 seats in the 288-member Assembly, well short of absolute majority.
"Want to thank people in Maharashtra and Haryana for reinforcing faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Our strength has gone up," he said.
The Parliamentary Board decided to send two observers each to Maharashtra and Haryana to decide on who will be the chief ministers.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday described as "historic results" the electoral victory in Haryana and Maharashtra and said it was a matter of immense happiness and pride for BJP.
Modi, who aggressively campaigned for the Assembly polls, expressed gratitude to the people of the two states besides saluting BJP cadres for their "tireless" efforts.
"Historic results! A matter of immense happiness & pride for BJP. I salute our Karyakartas for their tireless efforts," he tweeted as the party got majority in Haryana and emerged as the largest party in Maharashtra and was set to form government.
In another tweet, Modi said, "Thanks to the people of Haryana for giving us the opportunity to fulfil their dreams & to take Haryana's development journey to new heights."
Expressing gratitude to the people of Maharashtra, he said, "We are committed to Maharashtra's progress & creating a Maharashtra the world will be proud of."
"So far we have not taken any decision on Chief Ministers of Maharashtra or Haryana," he said after a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board here.
