Share This

imagesNEW DELHI : Denied Rajya Sabha ticket by the Samajwadi Party, senior leader Naresh Agarwal joined the BJP on Monday. Upset at SP favoring Jaya Bachchan over him for the Rajya Sabha nomination, Agarwal took a jibe at the actor-turned politician saying his old party had equated him with the somebody “who used to dance in films”.
Shortly after joining the safron party (BJP), former Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agrawal hit out at actor-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan for getting a ticket for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections, slated to be held on March 23.

“Films mein kaam karne wali se meri hesiyat kardi gayi, unke naam par humara ticket kataa gaya, maine isko bhi bahut utchit nahi samjha. Meri koi shart par nahi aya, koi Rajya Sabka ki ticket ki maang nahi hai (I was put at par with a film actor. My ticket was given to her. I have not come (to BJP) on any condition. I do not want a ticket to Rajya Sabha),” he said.naresh-agrawal_650x400_51520860415

“Whatever work the BJP gives me I will accept it. We will do seva for the BJP. I promise to deliver fully,” Mr Agrawal said in his speech today, praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah. He also spoke fondly about Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and his cousin Ram Gopal Yadav, but said the party’s strength in Uttar Pradesh has depleted.

Naresh Agrawal said that his son, a Samajwadi Party legislator in Uttar Pradesh, will vote in favour of the BJP in the Rajya Sabha elections.
In a jolt to the Samajwadi party, senior leader Naresh Agrawal joined the BJP in the presence of Union minister Piyush Goyal. Agrawal, who earlier was the general secretary of the Samajwadi Party and a Rajya Sabha member, was reportedly unhappy with the party president and former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for giving the Rajya Sabha ticket to Jaya Bachchan.

Last week, Jaya Bachchan was picked as the Samajwadi Party nominee for the Rajya Sabha elections from the state of Uttar Pradesh.”Naresh Aggarwal has joined many parties. He started his career in Congress. He was a member of the cabinet of Rajnath Singh. Then intermittently he was in Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and then he came in Samajwadi Party. He is widely experienced,” Amar Singh had said.
Bachchan is a three-time MP and was first elected to the Upper House by the Samajwadi Party in 2004 until March 2006. She got a second term from June 2006 and was re-elected in 2012 for the third term. Her third term comes to an end on April 3.

Meanwhile,Naresh Agrawal, once known to be close to party chief Akhilesh Yadav, joined the BJP  with a controversial remark that forced his new party to issue a disclaimer.”Shri Naresh Agarwal has joined BJP. He is welcome. However, his comments regarding Jaya Bachhan ji are improper and unacceptable,” Ms Sushma Swaraj has tweeted.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra immediately distanced his party from Mr Agrawal’s remarks, saying the BJP respects people from all fields and welcomes them in politics.
Naresh Agrawal is known to make controversial comments, including one that mocked Hindu gods and which created an uproar in parliament last year. (With Agency Inputs).
