"The BJP speaks of sabka sath, sabka vikas but when we try to give justice to all sections of society, the same BJP calls it appeasement. We can build a strong Bharat only with taking all people and all sections along," the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said.

He said the nation cannot progress when farmers are distressed, and youth are unemployed.

"The elections should be fought on issues. Farmers' distress, youth unemployment are issues.In 2019, you will see change," he added.
