He was asked what role Sonia Gandhi will play in bringing together opposition parties to form the next government, amid talks of the UPA chairperson asking its top leaders to talk to various leaders and hold a meeting with them to help form a secular alliance that could lead the next government.

“I am not going to pre-judge what the people of India will decide. The mood and vision of the people will come out on May 23... Whatever the people decide, we will do that.
