"My mother is 88. She has cooked for Deen Dayal Upadhyay, Atal Bihar Vajpayee. She has cooked for people from the party as it grew. I call her my sweet Holy Mother Teresa.

He also spoke about his humble beginnings into politics.

"Know the basic thing - Arun jaitley, myself, Kapil Sibal, P Chidambaram, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, we have risen from student organisations. I was the booth agent after passing my metric. Some people come into politics after making it big as a lawyer.  

He spoke about the three Ps in his life - Party, Parliament and Profession.

"When I am campaigning for Patna Sahib, I stopped working as a lawyer. People used to accuse me that I work for the party. When I became the MP for Rajya Sabha I stopped working as a lawyer," he said.

"I am not criticising the last regime. but they ignored Patna on purpose. Nitish Kumar and Sushil Kumar Modi have made efforts. I will take their work forward," he said.

"He is a big man. I don't want to be a big man, but the election is about agenda, not personality. I will not ask him to be khamosh but I will listen to the voice of the people."
