Naresh Agrawal makes objectionable comment against Jaya Bachchan, triggers controversy

Unacceptable: Sushma Swaraj On Naresh Agrawal's Comments In BJP Debut

Samajwadi Party Senior Leader Naresh Agrawal joins BJP after Samajwadi Party chose to name veteran actress Jaya Bachchan as its candidate for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections. Agrawal drew sharp criticism from the BJP, including External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who said his remarks were "improper and unacceptable".

Sushma Swaraj tweeted, "Naresh Agarwal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party".

The SP nominated Jaya Bachchan as its only candidate and made a decision to extendd the remaining votes to BSP candidate Bhim Rao Ambedkar.

He joined the BJP at a press conference in New Delhi in the presence of Railways Minister Piyush Goyal. "I just want to serve the BJP, I have no conditions and no demands for a ticket in the Rajya Sabha". Because of her, the ticket was not given to me, which I did not find right.

Bachchan's third term in the Upper House comes to an end on April 3.

Mr Agarwal further said that his "community" (Baniya-Vaish) had "anyway" been big supporters of the BJP and would therefore be happy to see him in the BJP. "My position has been compared to someone who works in the films".

Bharatiya Janata Party's new member Naresh Agarwal has already landed in trouble within hours of joining the party for his misogynistic comments against Samajwadi Party's Jaya Bachchan.

Agarwal, a two-time Rajya Sabha MP and seven-time MLA, is not new to controversial remarks.

Describing his joining the BJP as "homecoming", he said he would unconditionally do whatever the party wanted him to. "I will vote for BJP in Rajya Sabha and I thank PM Modi for showing faith on me".

Agrawal was once to close to Samajwadi Party leader and former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

He said the Samajwadi Party was losing its grip in Uttar Pradesh by aligning with parties such as the Congress or the BSP.

Agrawal had earlier been with the Loktantrik Congress Party with Jagdambika Pal that allied with the BJP government headed by Kalyan Singh in Uttar Pradesh in 1997. The remaining 9 additional votes will be given to the BSP candidate under the party coalition.
