Sharma was talking to reporters after casting his vote at a polling station in Sector 15A here.
"We are seeking votes in the name of nationalism. For us, the nation comes first. For the others, it is the family, the dynasty that comes first."
Lashing out at the Samajwadi Party (SP)-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) alliance in Uttar Pradesh, Sharma said, "The bua-bhatija (Mayawati-Akhlesh) are contesting on 72 of the total 80 seats. Leaders of parties with not a single MP are dreaming of becoming the Prime Minister. But they don't know that Modiji is contesting against them on all these seats."
Sharma, seeking a second term from Uttar Pradesh's Gautam Buddha Nagar constituency, faces BSP's Satveer -- a joint candidate of the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, Congress' Arvind Kumar Singh and 10 other candidates, including two Independents.
