Patna (Bihar) [India], November 5 (ANI): Exuded confidence that the Grand Alliance will form the next government in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tej Pratap Yadav on Thursday said that the polling in the first and second phases of the ongoing elections had been in the Mahagathbandhan's favour.
"It is certain that the Mahagathbandhan will form the next government in the state. We have full faith in the way, in which votes were cast (in our favour) in the first and second phases. Voting in the third phase too will be in our favour. It is time for development in Bihar," he told reporters here.
