"There are some families, in the past, they were called Rajgharana. They come in the election season to celebrate picnic and return only after five years. It is obvious, that this 'boat yatra' is for the vote only," said Dinesh Sharma.

"The SP-BSP has said that they don't need Congress because it has maligned intentions. So this 'boat Yatra' is 'vote yatra' with maligned intentions," said Dinesh Sharma.
