Congress leader Sachin Pilot, who is in Patna for campaigning amid ongoing state Assembly elections, is confident of 'Mahagathbandhan' making government in the state. While talking to ANI, he said that on Nov 10, 'Mahagathbandhan' will form the government with a thumping majority.

Congress leader Sachin Pilot on being asked about his party leaders terming Jyotiraditya Scindia as 'gaddar' said that public will ultimately decide who is wrong or right and everyone is free to decide which party they want to join. Sachin Pilot said, "I believe everyone is free to decide which party they want to be in and public ultimately decides who is wrong or right. He further said people have not accepted Shivraj Singh Chouhan as their Chief Minister. Congress is in a very strong position in all 28 seats where elections are going to happen. I have full faith that Congress candidates will stand up to the expectations of the public."
