Patna, October 29
Senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Thursday exuded confidence that the BJP’s dream of forming governments in east Indian states will be ended in the Assembly election in Bihar as the Grand Alliance, of which his party is a constituent, will post a “historic” victory.
He also said that the Grand Alliance is now setting agenda for Bihar’s development as its promise of sanctioning 10 lakh government jobs at the first cabinet meeting after coming to power was followed up by the BJP which said it will offer to people 19 lakh employments.
The Grand Alliance consists of the RJD, the Congress and three Left parties.
Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Gouvav Vallabh said the CM and his deputy should be dismissed for Munger incident— PTI
