Sushma Swaraj ticks off Naresh Agarwal for controversy comments on Jaya Bachchan

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

The SP has six Rajya Sabha MPs - Kiranmayee Nanda, Darshan Singh Yadav, Naresh Agarwal, Jaya Bachchan, Munawwar Saleem and Alok Tiwari - who are retiring.

Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj took to Twitter to register her unhappiness with Mr. Agarwal's remark, terming it improper and unacceptable.

Agrawal quit the Samajwadi Party and formally joined the BJP in New Delhi after he lost out his Rajya Sabha re-nomination to Bachchan. "I did not think it was appropriate to sideline me to give the Rajya Sabha ticket to someone who works in the film industry". Agarwal addressed a press conference on Monday along with Union minister Piyush Goyal and announced his entry into the BJP.

Sources within the BJP said that not everyone was pleased with Agrawal's induction into the party primarily because of his "insulting" comments for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Though their names have not figured in the official list of the BJP, the move is being seen in political circles as a "Plan B" of the ruling party.

He was referring to the nomination of film actor Jaya Bachchan by the Samajwadi Party for a Rajya Sabha seat from Uttar Pradesh in the coming biennial elections, ignoring Agrawal's claim.

Later, Anil Agarwal reached the state assembly premises as the ninth candidate of the BJP and filed his papers. "I will vote for BJP in Rajya Sabha and I thank PM Modi for showing faith on me". "Nobody found it proper", Agarwal said. "We should treat terrorists in our country the same way", Mr Agrawal had said. But his hopes were dashed when the Samajwadi Party chose Mrs Bachchan to be its candidate.

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

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra distanced his party from Agrawal's remarks, saying it respects people from all fields and welcomed them in politics. He has also stoked controversies.

He was also the Minister of Tourism in Mulayam Singh Yadav government from 2003 to 2004.

His son Nitin Agarwal, who won Hardoi constituency on SP ticket, too joined the BJP today.
