In his speech, Sharad Yadav, who left JD-U after Nitish Kumar toppled Grand Alliance government in Bihar, joined hands with BJP and formed new government in July last year, thanked all leaders of opposition parties who participated in the program.

Given attendance by more than 7000 people at Talkatora Stadium, it has given message that people want communal harmony & growth of this country, said Yadav.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi said: “Whether it is 2019 elections or local elections, opposition parties have decided to unite and defeat BJP and its ideology.”

“We don’t intend for a “BJP-mukt Bharat”, but we want to show them that our ideology is strong, sustainable and will defeat their ideology,” said Congress chief referring to BJP’s Congress-mukt Bharat slogan.
