"Today, the country needs a politics of change. The nation is going through a phase where inflation, corruption and little respect for the Constitution have become order of the day," Samajwadi Party president and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav said addressing a public rally organized by INLD to mark the 94th birth anniversary of former Deputy Prime Minister late Devi Lal here.
The rally, which witnessed an impressive turnout, was addressed by a galaxy of leaders, including Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, INLD president Om Prakash Chautala, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, Assam Gona Parishad leader Vrindavan Goswami and Madan Lal Khurana.
Barring AIADMK leader J Jayalalitha, the other UNPA leaders came together on a single platform.
Stressing that change was "imminent", the SP chief asked the people to take a resolve to throw out the UPA government at the Centre.
He said that UNPA was "one and united" and all its constituent parties, including SP, INLD, TDP and Assam Gona Parishad were cohesive.
Yadav alleged that the Congress-led UPA won't succeed in "terrorising" the UNPA leaders by "cooking up false cases against us and using CBI as a tool to scare us. They cannot scare us by using threat to send us to jails."
