Advani's source of strength: family

March 13, 2004 14:40 IST

Deputy Prime Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani said on Friday there was no message in his wife and daughter accompanying him on the Bharat Uday Yatra.

"They are keen to see that I am able to bear this 8,000 kilometer yatra properly," he said.

When asked about "the source of strength" for undertaking the journey, Advani said at an interaction with the media, "My family."

Advani's wife Kamala and daughter Pratibha accompanying him on the yatra had raised a controversy that the Bharatiya Janata Party was promoting "dynastic politics" like the Congress.
