Saroj Tyagi recited the lines 'Chun chun sansad mein gaye hum par karne raaj, sattar pratishat mafia baki kabootarbaaz.' Rajesh Rahi said "Na hum sulaphas khate hain, na hum phasi lagate hain, zaroorat pare to hum jaan ki baazi lagate hain. Subah jo channelon par gyan ki ganga bahate hain, who baba raat ko pocho kahan dubki lagate hain."
