During elections, he had called Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah a part of the Congress family and lauded him for his 'role' in India's independence.

Also in a controversial move, Sinha canvassed votes for his wife Poonam Sinha who was Samajwadi Party (SP) candidate for the Lucknow seat. She was contesting against Congress's Lucknow candidate Acharya Pramod.
